Whisky Reviews for Balmenach 2001GiQ Eagle Malt

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is a pretty extreme whisky without water - I found it hard to find the right balance with water, but just a tiny amount, I think, as it is easy to drown it and you get a rather flat grassy mess. Not one I would want a second glass of in a night, but I will say of the 7 Balmenachs I have had and/or rated this has the highest score.
    • Nose
      Woah! What the hell is that? Soured caramel, this reminds me of Pulteney; green cooking apples, touch of hay
    • Taste
      hot, pretty hot - malt notes - this is hard to consume even at 49.9%
    • Finish
      slight sour and hot notes; reminds me mulled wine
