Whisky Reviews for Ballechin 2007

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.10 points

  1. Norrwind26 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Smoker with sherry the way I like it. Both aspects come out well. Highly recommended.
    • Nose
      90 90
      First nose is alcoholic but not uncomfortable. Then comes chocolate, pipe tobacco, leather. Slight sweetness lies behind it.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Full and strong, yet slightly dry. Drinkable even without water. Sherry notes with spiciness. Chocolate again. Plum? Very attractive!
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long. Nice nose stays in the glass

  2. Piry scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    A smoky, fruity and insanely sweet whisky, not overly complex, but what it has to offer is wonderfully staged by the excellent dose of smoke.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The barrel strength can hardly be guessed at in the nose. The smoke is clearly recognizable, but does not hide the typical sherry aromas. Ripe plums, raisins, a hint of oak, forest honey.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Strong, incredibly sweet appearance, syrup, very oily, again plums and raisins, which are constantly played around by the smoke but not covered.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, still sweet and smoky, subtle oak. After a few minutes, the smoke subsides and the tongue feels like it is soaked in acacia syrup.
