A more complex proposition here, the higher alcohol content giving the malt a bit of extra muscle, although the rich, fruity distillery character is still very evident. A thinker's dram which picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

AMH (funnily enough, it's MAH from Espoo talking), your observation is correct, this and the single barrel 15 are best enjoyed with a teaspoon or a few of water to open them up. Great Balvenies both, surpassing IMO the doublewood and rum cask offerings that are a bit watery and light straight out of the bottle.
The nose and taste here were excellent, however, not a traditional Balvenie with the 47,8% abv. which does not do this dram any favors. I'd add water to this, which I normally never do when enjoying a Balvenie.
This is a great dram. The bottlings that are 18 years in the cask but sold as a 15 yr old scotch are really impressive. I just found one in Tampa, FL that was bottled in 2008 with a 2000 in cask date. The extra time in the cask makes this scotch even a better product. They are hard to find but worth the hunt!
Wonderfully elegant Speysider. I particularly like this in the Fall (like my Highland Park).
I treated myself to a bottle of this and after deliberating for a while in the shop (funds are tight at the moment) i have to say i'm so glad i bought it. The best whiskey i've tried so far, very rich, very smooth, so much flavour. A real beauty.
