Last night I had a few more bucks to spend and was running out of McClelland's Islay so I splurged and bought Balvenie 10 yr Founder's Reserve. Wow! Great whisky. I realize it is a Speyside but it has a Highland character to me. I found it rich and a little sweet, but with wonderful orangey, gingery notes and just a hint of smoke. It's too bad that the Founders Reserve has been retired (per Balvenie's website). It's easy for me to only concentrate on the Islay and Island whiskies, but Balvenie will certainly be in the mix from now on.
