Whisky Reviews for Ballechin Batch 4

- Just smells like peated whisky, nothing more and nothing less. The taste is also more sore than I expected from an Edradour - it is my first Ballechin. I was reminded of Ballchinian - for MIB enthusiasts. In the second drink, beautiful perfumed aromas of black fruit, blackberries in particular, emerge. Autumn drink, this. I can't say the sherry cask finish is falling off. Little Caol Ila cherries now. I get used to it, it is quite tasty, and no, I will not spend 175 euros on it in ten years. I love Edradour - the Ballechin still has to conquer me.
- Very good, sweet and spicy whisky, which is fully reflected mainly in the taste of nice intense smoke and roughness, which very well complements the overall sweetish character. I take Ballechin for a more detailed survey.
Vacuum cleaner bag, earthy tones, slightly synthetic. Sweetness, spicy - overripe apples, apple juice. Bandages.
Sweet, dense, full taste. Sweetness dominates, but at the same time it shows pleasantly strong smoke. After a while still smoke, oily woodiness. Excellent.
Longer, sweet - smoky - woody. The smoke remains.
Burned wood, burned caramel, wet cardboard.
- Exciting nose: a lot of young peat, very strong, but also noticeably sherry, leather, a bit sweaty, herbaceous.
In the mouth then first a clear peat attack, a lot of peat, the young strong, who also likes to be in Port Charlotte, then come the sweet fruit notes.
In the finish then clearly sherry, a little vinous, light sulfur (not disturbing), in the finish then dark chocolate, some tobacco, and peat.
Torfig, smoky at the beginning then comes a little bit of rubber. A very light breeze of sweet cherries joins in after all
The peaty outweighs with some gum and bitter wood notes
medium peaty and malty
