Balvenie A Day of Dark Barley 26Yr 750ml

The arrival at the distillery of a batch of dark roasted malted barley, more commonly used in the production of stout, marked the beginning of a 26 year long experiment. The result was a pleasing depth - smokiness and oakiness as well as the classic honey, vanilla and citrus flavors. 

 

Big malty notes on the nose with soft brown sugar, vanilla toffee, blossom honey and a mild oaky spiciness. Syrupy with a toffee sweetness, some citrusy notes of tangy orange peel, floolowed by oak vanilla and a touch of cinnamon and ginger spices at the end. Enduring gentle waves of vanilla and oak spices.

Another Balvenie Hit

Balvenie creates the most impressive scotch.
This rivals the 21 year portwood.
This smells like the entrance to a kiseki restaurant in Arashiyama of Kyoto. The taste is delicate. Like a first kiss from a woman more experienced than you. But then develops into something much more complicated, a dance on the tongue. More umami than sweet. That must be the development of the barley. The price is modest for a whiskey this cultured. When you first open it, enjoy it by yourself first. Then sprinkle it on the peasants. Let them drink scotch. Then let them eat cake.
