Balnellan 12 year old Speyside Glenlivet, 40%

Price: $33 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Enjoy fresh aromas in multiple ways, like fruit (melon, pear, blueberry) and a sea breeze (oyster shell, salty). Full flavors of tangerine, Bosc pear, salted pistachio, white pepper, dried ginger, and mint are diminished only by the light body. The finish is particularly satisfying, but a little more heft would make it shine. (Total Wine & More)
