The Balvenie has a very wide range of single malt offerings that span the categories of ages and wood finishes. All of them are "sweet" Whiskies in the Speyside tradition.
They tend to be rich and flavor-dense with light fruit notes of apple, pear, and lemon zest. There is also the pronounced taste and aroma of fresh vanilla bean that just jumps right out at you. You will not even find a hint of smoke beacsue that's just not the way that they roll at The Balvenie. The finish tends to be medium-long with a lingering "carrot-spice-cake" note that stays with you.
