Balvenie 10 Founder's Reserve Bottling Note
A great 10 year old from Balvenie. Founder's Reserve is Whisky Magazine Recommended, Michael Jackson suggests this might be the most "honeyish of Speyside malts".
The nose is medium-bodied with notes of marmalade and rosewater, honey and spice with a gentle smoky note. The palate is sweet and spicy with notes of lightly sherried peels and acacia honey. The finish is long and viscous with plenty of spice and sweetness.
Is this coming back?

Opened a bottle of this the other evening at my grandfathers which had been in a cupboard for a couple of years. Not aware of what it was worth at the time. The nose was enough to highlight that it was a very nice bottle. We ended up finishing the bottle between 3 of us and were up till 2 am discussing the joy of that honey note.
A recommended bottle.
