This rum barrel aged expression from The Balvenie is delightful without breaking the bank. Being a Speyside scotch, it is sweeter than the drams I typically go for, but that is balanced by its full-bodied texture and smooth finish. Definitely an enjoyable drink for a relaxed evening when you aren’t looking to break into anything too smokey.
The rich, creamy texture and vanilla sweetness make this scotch accessible to new scotch drinkers, while still being an enjoyable change of pace for the scotch enthusiast. If your usual go-to whisky is bourbon, give this Scotch a try, and enjoy the unique flavors of the highlands.
