A pleasant nose with honey covered peaches citrus fruit. But I would get some flashes of stale sherry. A bit thin on the palate with initial citrus tanginess. Gets a bit toasty/ bready in the mid-palate. There's a winey-like component in here as well (white wine). The wood emerges toward the finish with a hint of salt.
This wasn't great and it wasn't bad. The word "safe" popped up several times as I took the time to nose and taste this. It's nice to drink and unobejectionable. I was not suprised to find out this was a Balvenie as I feel most of their stuff is very easy drinking without the "aha" moments. Tun 1401 Batch 3 is the exception.
