    It smells like burned wood in combination with an ashtray and forrest like an aroma from the Rituals. So, not bad :-)

    The initial taste is completely different. Sweet melons and peaches with other sweet fruits and again that ashtray. 

    The body says: that smell and taste together, sweet marzepin and burned things. 

    The finish is an burned wood, peachy, sweet and oiled whisky, staying on your tongue. 

    Great whisky, when you love peateds.

    Very fine single cask ballechin for an equally nice price. From the nose to the finish a constructive character. soft sweet, yet firm peat. Vanilla, herbs (nutmeg / pepper), licorice are a few things that pass by.
    and just like every year with the * bams bottling * a nice presentation of the bottle under the name * the eye also wants what *.
    definitely a must to run to Maastricht.

  7. Jaydee scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An excellent limited edition whisky in the range of bottlings of Slijterij Bams in Maastricht. Taste with smoke and peat, well balanced with the sweetness of fruit as well as hints of vanilla and some spicyness. Finish is long and pleasantly sweet.
