Whisky Reviews for Old Ballantruan The Peated Malt

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.43 points

  1. No1 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    According to some semi-official information, the age of this US whisky is 5-8 years (I don't personally feel these aging years). On average, she approached me. I have mixed feelings. Neither is she a smoke jackal, nor will I classify her as a floral one. It let me down a bit. The 78 point score according to my scale and my assessment is still a high result. Maybe today is not the day my taste buds would be more forgiving of this whisky.
    I will definitely come back to her and maybe then I will verify my assessment.
    We will see what his 10-year-old brother will taste like.

    Full body, smoke, peat and sherry and yet a real Speyside..
    • Nose
      84 84
      Spicy, careful with the nose because of. alcohol.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Sweets of honey and sweet fruit. Smoke, peat, a little leather sometimes. Something happened in the mouth. But taste less intense than the nose suggests.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Nice finish, lasts just long enough.
      Delicious with chocolate.
