Nose:  Intensely floral and fruity, orange peel, lavender and coconut with a hint of nuts.

Chuao - Miel, Grignottine or Rio Caribe

Miel's honey nuttiness is a perfect foil, while Grignottine plays well with both the fruit and oak.   Whether you prefer milk or dark chocolate, the choice is yours. 



Casa Magna Colorado Robusto

A classy and elegant blend with dark caramel sweetness, creamy body and rich spices and mocha that plays off the vanilla and spice of the Balvenie. The resting smoke of the Casa Magna is delicious when sipping the malt. A luxurious pairing.
