Whisky Reviews for Ballechin 2003 SV

  1. glen efze scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    When it comes to economical use of barrels, Andrew Symington from Edradour / Signatory is a proverbial Scotsman. This refill sherry barrel after Islay should have been well used even before Islay. It not only gave off hardly any color - there are also no deep sherry flavors here. The alcohol is present in the nose and taste, water is definitely trendy, but does not tease out any essential aromas either. The whisky is sweet and looks much younger than its 15 years. The Ballechin smoke is quite subdued, the subtractive ripening is likely to be stronger than the additive ripening. The alcohol is also present with water and the whisky looks sealed.

  2. Fight65 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Too sprightly and too little profound. The 15Y are not used. A little water helps.
