cuhp gave this whisky 93 points
Color
Brown sherry
Nose

Powerful and intense nose - both sweet and sour (in a positive way). Sherry, orange, chocolate and slightly bitter.

Taste

Lots of chocolate and wood. Simple, but sooooo nice. 

Finish

Wood, spicy, liquorice and leather.

Comments

Tasted blindly. Splendid whisky, which I would prefer over most Glendronachs and Macallans.

Malt Hans gave this whisky 90 points

Balmenach 1977 32YO First fill sherry butt #4493 G&M for Juul`s, 55,7%. Fruity sherry aroma, raisins, ripe plums, chocolate, figs, tobacco, coffee, furniture polish, oak and almonds. Rather dry and spicy taste, ginger, nutmeg, eucalyptus, dark chocolate, raspberries, ripe orange and resin. Long, fruity and herbal end.
