Whisky Reviews for Ballechin 2004

  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Great combination of red wine and smoke flavors.
    • Nose
      Hearty, greasy smoky notes. Leather and cigar tobacco. Vinous fruit notes behind. Red berries. Grape juice. Over time, it just gets cuter. Plums. Marzipan. Caramel.
    • Taste
      Great mouthfeel. Perfect alcohol strength. First the smoke rolls over the tongue. Briefly ashy, but then hearty and sweet with barbecue aromas. Less fruity than on the nose, but the red berries are also back. It becomes pleasantly dry on the palate.
    • Finish
      Long, aromatic, smoky, sweet.

    I like the nose best with this bottling. Overall a good whisky, if not too exciting / complex. I would like a little more fruitiness and a less dry mouthfeel even better.
