The Balvenie 21 Year Old Single Barrel Scotch Whisky
Drawn from a refill American oak cask after a lengthy slumber, this expression has taken on lots of familiar honeyed barley notes, making for a wonderful postprandial dram.
Nose: Upfront, we have delicate floral vanilla notes, with honeycomb, brioche, cinnamon, and maple syrup closely following.
Palate: Treacle tart and more maple syrup, now with walnut, mature oak, and a hint of caraway.
Finish: Pleasantly oaky, with a touch of honey.
