“It is a real pity it is so expensive, because it is an awesome whisky.”
A marriage of Balvenie aged in traditional whisky oak casks and European oak sherry casks. Thirty is a rich and mellow single malt with unusual depth and complexity.
Very expensive, elitist, deluxe, yeah, it is simply the best Balvenie I have ever tried. Save for this one!
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (93): strong. candies, vanilla, wood, nuts, citrus, floral. It is a mystic experience to nose how the honey present in younger Balvenies turns into candies on this granma. Delicious.
Palate (94): oily, viscous, powerful. candies, wood, spices, honey, floral, citrus, nuts.
Finish (93): very long. floral, honey, vanilla, peaches, wood.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Balvenie 30 year with 93 points over 100.
