Balvenie Classic Single Malt Scotch NAS


This is a No-age Statement expression released by Balvenie until 1993. Colour: full amber. Unusually dark for Balvenie. Nose: starts extremely sherried whilst most official Balvenies we know are much more floral and fruity. Very powerful, almost too sharp and violent at just 43%. A lot of game, lovage (or Maggi plant), much closer to an old Macallan Iíd say. Quite some nougat and praline. Gets closer to the usual Balvenies after a while (a lot of honey, dandelions, nectar) but there are also hints of smoke. Mouth: really powerful, extremely honeyed, with also a lot of bacon and notes of peppered strawberries, yet itís quite perfectly balanced. Bold sherry, nothing to do with the current Balvenies I must say. Finish: Ďas long as a day without breadí (or without whisky?), mostly on strawberry jam and maybe a little cherry liqueur. Totally amazing power. 750ml, 43% ABV. Slight evaporation, without box.
