The Balvenie Signature

Country: Scotland

Region: Speyside

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 40%

Score: 82 Points

This expression may vary from batch to batch, but Batch #1 has lavender and a hint of cloves with straw and dried grass on the nose. The taste has cloves and cinnamon on top of a subtle black pepper kick…nice hint of nutmeg as well on the finish with just a touch of caramel candy sweetness. (2008)
