Whisky Reviews for Ballechin 2005 vW

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.80 points

  1. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Simply excellent peated Edradour. Good example of excellent cask selection by van Wees.

  2. Menko scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    11 Years in a ex-Bourbon barrel, so the bourbon is more then noticeable.
    Would have been better after chillfilteration in my opinion. The flavor is really good and it doesn't need a lot of water, but only with lots of water you can get most of the sharp (alcohol) edge off that covers the good flavor.
    I know van Wees doesn't do chillfilteration. Sometimes that turns out really well, sometimes it doesn't.
