Whisky Reviews for Ballechin 2005 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.92 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The nose was very good, the palate outstanding, but the trump card was played in the finish! This is my 10th Ballechin so far and I truly love this style. I was a bit reluctant in my expectations as I feel wine finishes – or maturations – are often tricky. But this spirit counter footed the cask beautifully. Recommended.
    • Nose
      Lovely, sweet nose on all kinds of red fruit ranging from raspberry to strawberry with some herbal notes in the middle like autumn leaves. A touch of cinnamon makes it somewhat candy-like. 
    • Taste
      It is silky soft and round, fruity sweet (again quite a bit of red fruit, but now also some tangerines) and a touch spicy. Think ginger, cinnamon and a touch of cloves. Soft tannins make it mildly drying, but this is far from oaky. A mild smokiness (which I hardly detected on the nose) spreads in your mouth. This is the good stuff.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the wine finally truly shows itself, but it works like a charm.
