Whisky Reviews for Balmenach 2008 HSD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.06 points

  1. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Looks like a rebottling/relabeling of this one: https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/141792/balmenach-2008-hb

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Direct comparison with 141792. Randomly identical key data. But this one is nowhere near as good as the HB's.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      mahogany

      Nose:
      Starts with glue and treated Hokz. Icing sugar and musty cellar air. Behind it sour cherries and red currants. Marzipan joins it. A dry instant lemon tea note follows.
      But smells somewhat watered down in comparison.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet start. Then the peppery one again. Plus more woody bitterness. Anise and a tea-like taste. Somehow sour, dry and bitter.
      Another artificial taste. With some juniper berries. The colleague also has something diluted in terms of taste.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Slightly creamy. Then it becomes drier and more bitter. In addition, a little citric acid.
