Whisky Reviews for Balmenach 1983 BF

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.92 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Great Balmenach which
    proves that it is not always a good idea to use every cask for a blend. Thanks,
    Michiel & Mireille!
    • Nose
      Honeysweet and creamy
      nose on all sorts of yellow fruit. Mirabelle, pineapple, peach. Some juicy
      apples too. Marzipan. Oats. Chocolate and coconut. Frangipane cake. Cinnamon
      and a smidgen of liquorice. Nice, complex nose!
    • Taste
      Nicely oily on the
      palate. Powerful, too. Very spicy (ginger and pepper) and sweet. A tad too
      sweet, almost. Loads of honey, yellow fruit and vanilla. Caramel. Melon kicks
      in. And something minty
    • Finish
      Long finish, albeit
      rather sweet, but not so much that it becomes annoying.

  2. Malt Hans scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Malty and spicy aroma, cardamom, pepper,

    lemon, pop corn, mint, ripe melon and dry hay. Marzipan sweet taste,

    pepper, ginger, eucalyptus, floral honey and walnuts. Medium long,

    malty, sweet and herbal end.
