Size: 750ml
Type: Scotch
Varietal: Single Malt
Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Proof: 86

"The initial aroma is sweetish, winey and oaky; aeration allows the aroma to expand to include marzipan, treacle, molasses, honey, vanilla bean, cinnamon and cocoa butter. The palate entry is sweet, creamy and assertive; at midpalate the flavor becomes intensely nutty, buttery and bacon fat-like, with the beginnings of rancio. Remains one of Speyside’s standard-bearer 12 year olds." 90-95 pts.

Ardmore Traditional Cask

"Golden amber color. Bold aromas of peat, iodine, baklava, and creme caramel follow through on a rich, satiny entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with layer of buttercream, dried fruits, pine cone ash, oat cereal, and sweet spice. Finishes with a long interplay of cream, spice, and iodine laced part. Impressive, different and fun."

Glenrothes Select Reserve

"Brilliant golden amber color. Sweet toffee, anise, heather, and brown butter aromas. A soft entry leads to a supple, dryish medium-bodied palate with sweet toffee, peppery spice, and mint flavors. Finishes with a spicy, mineral, and toffee fade. Refreshing and refined."

Balvenie 14 year old Carribean Rum Cask Finished

A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice and a hint of tropical fruit (papaya, guava, tangerine). Great viscosity with good grip on the finish. I really like the balance in this whisky—nice complexity too! A very solid effort and the price is right.

Speyside Standard-bearer May 24, 2014
Reviewed by: Whiskycat

On the nose, sweet cherry and vanilla, with oak wood, grapes, and some spice. Almost cognac-like. On the palate, extremely rich, with more notes of cherry, raisin, and vanilla. There are some spicy qualities like ginger and nutmeg (maybe cinnamon also). It finishes with more wood and some nuttiness, with a bit of toffee. Very smooth…no burn.This is a remarkably flavorful and rich malt. Excellent oak wood finish with black cherry and vanilla flavors. This is the definitive example of sherry-influenced Speyside malts at this price point, and one which will definitely be a standard of comparison for all others.
