Balvenie 18 Year Old Classic Bot.1980s
Variety: Scotch Whisky
An unboxed flat bottle of Balvenie Classic from the 1980s. This bottling states its age of 18 years on the wax seal at the base of the neck. This is one of the rarer versions of these very collectable Balvenies.
Dominant wax note and a bit fusty. Nutty too. It's interesting and I'm glad I could try this, but I'm not a fan of wax notes.

TASTE: bees wax, ginger, oranges, cucumber, walnuts, nutmeg, nougat, oak
