Balvenie tun 1401 batch 8
gebruikt voor deze botteling zijn 9 ex bourbon barrels & ex sherry vaten
Whiskybase score 91,1
Cacao powder, dark chocolate, burnt honey butter and black tea. Next up is a whiff of cherry syrup, plums and ripe banana, as well as some old damp wood, vanilla and furniture polish. This too, is balanced to perfection.
Rather syrupy, and a lot more sherry influence than Batch 5. Juicy plums, raisins and strawberries, but also some spicier notes of ginger and cinnamon. Quite a lot of leather, and resinous too. Finally there's dark chocolate, and just a whiff of menthol.
Lingers on menthol and spices for a long time. Drying.
