    Not too grotesque, smoky and complex Ballechin, but it's easy to drink an affordable price.
    • Nose

      Forest fruits, citruses, sulfuric and acidic wine, camphor, herbals and burnt gum.
    • Taste

      Powerful and creamy. Sweet fruits. Spicy oak. Nutmeg and pepper. Discrete smoke and sawdust.

  6. Don Cassi scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The nose opens with smoked bacon, followed by berry fruit aromas. Everything is relatively diffuse and not very present. After adding water, a little vanilla is added and it becomes a little creamier but not really more intense.

    Already a bit fuller in the mouth, despite the young age, clear oak that continues into the finish. In addition, there is some ash and sweet and sour dried fruits. At the end there is unfortunately a slight metallic appearance. The alcohol is always well integrated and hardly disturbs.
    Length: 5/10

    Interesting bottling, but I guess that at the age of 2 or 3 it would have been more present and balanced in the barrel.

    Grade: 2+
