  3. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I'm not sure how to find it. If he didn't have the light soap note, I would really like it. So he didn't quite convince me.
    • Nose
      Caramel turned very dark. The smoke goes towards campfire smoke and smoked fish. Juniper. The sherry is here. It is more tart and fruity than sweet. A little soap, which I often have at Edradour. It is rather rare for the Ballechins.
    • Taste
      Sweeter than the nose. Such a mixture of sweetness and spice. Some figs and raisins. In addition, proper seasoning. Toasted pepper. It’s colder now. Frankincense too. Another touch of soap.
    • Finish
      Cold wood smoke. Cooking grate after grilling. Burnt honey.

  7. LeChiffre scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Powerful and intense sherry keg matured malt. Beautiful combination of sherry notes and smokiness. Only the oak, which is a little too strong for my taste, prevents a higher score.
    • Nose
      84 84
      powerful; sweet smoky note; clearly sherry; Caramel; subtle notes of dark fruits; spicy; fruity-sweeter with water
    • Taste
      83 83
      powerful and oily in the mouth; clearly present oak note; Sweet with notes of dark fruits; tingling spicy; Cinnamon; smoke
    • Finish
      84 84
      long; very spicy; sweet; smoky; pleasant minimal bitter oak
