    Balmenach 26y 1983/2010, 52.8%, Bladnoch Forum, cask 2410, 201 bottles Fresh, pleasant nose on floral and fruity elements. Apples, peaches. Honey too and a slight granularity. The taste is oily and on the bitter side (nuts, coffee, licorice), but without disturbing, the honey and fruit compensate more than enough. Sturdy and rather dry finish, but here too some fruit that ensures that the balance does not tilt too much to the dry. Far from this Balmenach. 82/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/03/07/balmenach-26y-1983-bladnoch-forum/

  3. Lafroy scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Nose is filled with strong alcohol, surprisingly at this age. Notes of flowers, melon, fruits and citrus are noticeable. It seems smooth and rather sweet.
    • Taste
      Taste is smooth, relatively dry with a lot of fruity sweetness. Hints of melon, gooseberry, honey and herbal spices.
    • Finish
      Medium long, but very creamy, sweet, fruity with hints of light coffee.
