Whisky Reviews for Ballechin 2008

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.87 points

  1. Pollenflug scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    More on: https://tomtrinkt.blog/
    • Nose
      Surprisingly introverted campfire smoke, bacon, some vanilla / caramel and honey. The harmonious nose is additionally surrounded by fine sherry notes - dark forest fruits sting up.
    • Taste
      Beautifully oily, initially slightly sweet and pleasantly fruity, the smoky campfire notes are rapidly gaining momentum. Raspberries, raisins, malt, indefinable herbal notes with a light pepperiness, walnuts and dark chocolate join. Spicy oak notes become more present. The 46 volume percent are well integrated.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. The sherry barrel can set the last fruity accents. The smoke lingers for some time and is replaced by bittersweet chocolate notes and fine oak spice.

  2. Koalafant scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    An uncomplicated malt ... Not boring but nothing special.
    • Nose
      Chimney smoke with dates in bacon. Add herbs, hay and cappuccino. Slightly piercing ...
    • Taste
      Fire again. Crispy bacon, espresso and pipe tobacco. Slightly burning.
    • Finish
      long and coffee-like

  3. Abadon05 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Exactly my booty scheme. I particularly like the strawberry sweetness. And at the price and the age. Nice.
    • Nose
      Cotton candy, strawberries (personally reminds me very much of Maoam's rosy strawberry crackers). And some ham
    • Taste
      Incredibly mild, plus a cherry note.
    • Finish
      Now the smokiness comes through more, but the strawberry sweetness remains.

  4. Menko scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    I think Domani has given a pretty accurate description. The marriage between Edradour and Ballechin is more or less successful, but it did not originate from flaming passion. More time might have brought some depth into the relationship.
    A Ballechin and a Edradour is a smarter choice if you want to buy something. I think you would do better to mix both bottles yourself. I'm going to try it out :-)

  5. zaphod155 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    I would have hoped for a bit more smokiness and complexity in the mix of casseroles, but that's what age is missing.
    • Nose
      light smoke, cinnamon, cloves, some cassis
    • Taste
      light smoke, first smoked trout, then more toasted cereal, dark chocolate, vanilla, light ginger sharpness, quite dry mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      medium long, smoky and spicy

  7. Albaron scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    Solid whisky that offers only subtle smoke. Nevertheless a somewhat unusual drop with interesting flavors, which makes fun out of it
    • Nose
      tingling alcohol, fruit compote, mirabelles, light smoke with a hint of BBQ, some toffee and caramel, a hint of spicy fruit, like carambola, fresh lemon mint
    • Taste
      mediocre onset, malty, a bit bitter, black tea, caramel and then the smoke
    • Finish
      the smoke fades quickly and the malt and black tea stays longer
