Another cracking dram from the Signatory stand at The Whisky Show. The Balmenach distillery isn’t seen everyday on the shops’ shelves and that it is because most of it ends up as blended whisky.
“Such greatness in this whisky! I bought one bottle of it. I couldn't resist”
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (91): more than average. honey, wood, spices, cloves, vanilla, candies, floral.
Palate (93): powerful, oily. honey, spices, candies, liquorice, apples, pears, citrus.
Finish (92): longer than average. honey, spices, floral.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Balmenach 1988 / 25 Year Old / Cask #1132/ Signatory for TWE Speyside Whisky with 92 points over 100.
Well… already said it I love it so much that I bought one bottle. Well invested money.
