Balvenie Single Barrel 15

This is a first for me as I’d never seen this whisky before, let alone try it

The first thing that strikes you is the rich colour which is like a cream sherry. The nose is all cherries with nutmeg and ginger with a hint of spice

The taste is like a Christmas cake that’s been well watered with rum, or a slice of Soreen Malt Loaf washed down with sherry

There’s more spice in the finish with dark chocolate overtones

This dram is different in that it’s bottle number 16 drawn from a single cask so others from a different cask may have other attributes

My first dram of Balvenie Single Barrel certainly won’t be my last!
