A stunning malt from Balvenie. At the 2007 World Whiskies Awards, this won the World's Best Vintage Speyside and World's Best New Release before carrying off the overall World's Best Speyside Trophy. It also won a Gold Editor's Choice Award from Whisky Magazine and received a glowing review from Dave Broom.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Comments from The World Whiskies Awards 2007
“Hugely complex: perfumed with dried apricot, pear, orange and cinnamon. There’s honey, hazelnut, orange blossom water, spices and light smoke. Intensely concentrated mid-palate with a mass of honeyed red and black fruits, spice, apple. Superb balance and harmony between all the elements. Sweet toffee. Smoke. Proof, if it were needed, that this is a first growth distillery.”
“Talcum powder, confection, strawberry jam. To taste it has a quaint old fashioned feel, dry as a tinder box and a wisp of smoke. Afairly feminine dram with layers of perfumed talc lingering on the aftertaste.”
“Rich and profound. Caramelised fruit, custard, shortcake and a touch of polished floor on the nose. The same delicious sensation of paradise lost with cooked fruit on the palate. This is a superb late afternoon dram to enjoy for a relaxing moment listening to Beethoven’s 7th symphony.”
“Primrose, big bold fruits on the nose. Absolutely dripping with style and class. Everything in perfect balance in the mouth, with oddball blackcurrant mixing with hints of smoke and a captivating fruit and malt two step running through its heart. The finish is long and pleasant.”
“A fantastic dram. Plenty of coconut and exotic fruits. Not to be missed.”
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom
Shows real maturity, but with a lifted, elegant rather than woody nose: light dried fruit, resin, sandalwood, hint of varnish and slightly rum-like notes moving into malted milk.
Silky palate mixing honey scented with rosemary, and layered fruits. Very well balanced.
This oozes class and, for me, is streets ahead of everything else in this group.

I've had this bottle for about 2 years now. The finish is smooth and you can detect a slight cask finish similar to the 50 year finish of the 1937 bottling. Strong front and distinct Balvenie finish. Very satisfying.
