2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.48 points

  1. cuhp scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

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

  2. Malt Hans scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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.
