The Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch #3

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 50.3%
Score: 94 points

This Tun 1401 batch was released in 2011 in the U.S., and has a nose full of nutmeg, honey, vanilla, and oak in great balance with a touch of brown sugar underneath. The taste is rich with a good balance of creaminess and spices. The cinnamon seems to last forever, fading slowly to reveal honey, vanilla, oak and dried fruits with a hint of banana. The finish is amazingly long with spices that remain subtle and not overpowering.
