Review #267 – The Balvenie 15yr SiB (Ex-Bourbon)
Whiskey Network Review #267 | /r/Scotch Review #112 – The Balvenie 15yr Single Barrel, 95.6pf | 47.8% ABV
Nose: Definitely Balvenie. Sweet, doughy, yeasty. Mild citrus. Cinnamon, clove.
Taste: Sweet and cream forward. Lots of nice doughy sweetness, clove, cinnamon, vanilla, butter cream. The slight boost in proof is excellent and makes for a nice mouthfeel.
Finish: Medium, no heat or real roughness. Sweet and kind of one trick but delicious.
Overall: While not exceptionally exciting, it’s well done and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Too bad it’s discontinued. I’m giving this a Rank 6.
Thanks for reading!
