Hails from Banffshire, Dufftown. Matured first in Ex Bourbon Barrels and then in Sherry cask. Cigar box aromas. Lots of heather. Background sweet woodsy smoke comes out as it breathes. Soft floral and fruity. Spicy fruitcake. Lots of sherry cask influence. The Balvenie house style is one of high tones and macho power.
