Whisky Reviews for Balmenach 1988 SV

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.89 points

  1. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Have not had the chance to have many Balmenach so I look forward to tasting this one today.

    Nose starts off nicely with soft fruits just harvested. Some wood spices and a distant campfire aroma arrive, followed by some honey and vanilla extract.

    Palate presents with strawberry jam, creamy honey, more vanilla extract before cinnamon and some pepper arrive.

    Finish carries on from palate with the honey and strawberry jam though the jam is now topping some weird but tasty chili pepper flakes sprinkled on vanilla ice cream note. Finishes off with some saltiness and smoke.
