An additional period of maturation in 30 year-old port pipes has given this aged Balvenie an extra level of depth and concentration of flavour, adding potent fruit and smoke notes to the silky-smooth full-bodied palate. Rich, indulgent, after-dinner Speyside at its best.Tasting Notes (3)
Balvenie 21 Year Old Port Wood
Port Pipe Finish
Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Big and fruity up front, with ripe raisins, touches of peach and a background of nuts.
Creamy texture with the classic honey and spices complemented by dried fruit and grapes.
Long, with nuts and hints of cocoa.
Tasting Notes by Dr Whisky
Fruity and creamy, like orange creamsicles. Raisin sweetness and brazil nut dryness. A distinct mustiness in the background verifies the age.
Honeyed and creamy with a big, rich flavour impact; but somehow gentle, like a pillowfight or Jello wrestling. Spicy, too, pepper and a bit of chinese 5-spice or something. Deep and complex. Long creamy finish with nutty oakiness and, i dunno... hard to explain; not a flavour but a feeling...very exciting, like gently touching the inside lip of someone you love (or lust) with your tongue. Warming and sensual. Each sip an experience that is happily repeated.
Producer's Tasting Notes
A perfume of fruity and ripe raisin notes, backed by a nutty dryness.
A malt of refinement and remarkable character, it is creamy and silky with fruit, honey and spice notes, and has a long and gentle nutty finish.

Finally got round to buying one of these. I wasn't disappointed! The port flavours are balanced and it doesn’t come across too sweet. Had to have a few glasses just to check but definitely a worthwhile addition to the whisky cupboard.
Very good but not comparable to whiskies like The Dalmore or Macallan 18 year olds in smoothness or complexity. But this was nicely flavored with a fine complex aroma.
I first tried the 21 year old in England on a business trip in 1995. I now live in the US and drink no other scotch. Keep up the excellent work.
Dr. Jordan (a martini guy) had a bottle of this at his house that he would pour for me when ever I stopped by. It is still my favorite and has put me off of all other single malt scotch.
