Balvenie 14yo RumWood (47.1%, OB, bottled in 2005, only 14 casks, from warehouse#29)

Color: brown.

Nose: Spice, citrus, maltiness, then reveal  some raisin, honey, pear.  Very Balvenie, but with a touch of rum feel. Increased complexity for sure.

Taste: Sweet, with hint of spice. Medium body, medium finish. Dry finish.

Conclusion: 88 points. Very nice rum finish. Very successful wood finish. Something really worth for collectors.
