Bally Delicious (Balvenie) – 23yo/1989 – Master of Malt – 54%
Light straw yellow in colour.
A light, elegantly fragrant and accessible nose with light stewed fruits making an appearance.
Much stronger on the palate than the nose leads you to imagine, a spicy hit that tales straight off into a pleasantly warming experience. The wood is very up front, but adds an interesting aspect to the whisky which doesn’t over power it but leads to long slightly dry finish.
Overall this is a fairly light dram whose mouth feel is light but pleasing. It oozes a good amount of quality.
