The Balvenie 40 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Nose: Elegant old sherry wood, very floral honey, maple syrup, treacle toffee, wood polish on a surprisingly new wood floor, bits of old stained wood, fig rolls, a hint of green leaves and a slab of rich vanilla sponge cake. Palate: Creamy vanilla, lemon zest and excellently balanced spicy wood: Cinnamon and nutmeg laced eggnog? Lemon egg custard tarts? A turn towards a tannic edge as you swallow, along with some old cognac rancio, with autumnal forests and damp wood. Finish: Sugared raisins, sherbert, liquorice root, a lingering sweetness and a hint of minerality as it fades Comments: Surprisingly fresh for such an old whisky, with a nice balance between sherry and bourbon. They could have gone down the more common route of bringing out a sherried beast, but instead have stuck to the distillery character and built the sherry around a honeyed bourbon cask centre. Good work.

As sweet as a cognac. Almost. Some other interesting things happening on the palate. Definitely has its own unique taste profile- even tastes a bit bourbon-like. A pretty solid single malt that stands up to its higher priced, more aged, peers. (Posted on 11/27/2015)
