  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Yeah. Hot. Good brand, just bourbon barrel, barrel thickness, fits. Could be my best Ballechin so far. I'm in heaven.
    • Nose
      crispy pancakes, vanilla, sugar, sweetish-woody, creme brulee, smells very "flambé" - I hardly recognize typical peat smoke, which has more of very crispy toasted barrel ... in between times also dry sawdust and white pepper , then again very dark baked sugar cookies; I do not really want to admit water, but for science: banana, overripe yellow apple to baked apple, a touch of pineapple and solvent, still very "useless" Pure I think actually more beautiful, possibly a small droplet for the banana, more is not necessary
    • Taste
      Mjam - crispy-biscuit-sugary, burnt pastry with a slight tendency to campfire / charcoal (here you notice the peat smoke bitter on the palate), and clearly woody, but not dark / old ... as if I am herumkaue on a small stick of light wood "marinated" in honey-bourbon-sugar-vanilla sauce, burnt-on light sponge cake, soy pudding of orange marmalade (with delicious edradour marmalade with the pieces of peel) ... a dream. Dilute really only when it is necessary, if he is too strong & you are too weak, wins nothing.
    • Finish
      super - long, warm, the (pleasant) sharpness leaves such a slightly dry-stunned mouthfeel, burnt honey-vanilla biscuit ... :-D
