Honey, watermelon, lemon peel, hint of dijon mustard and then coffee beans.


Thick and creamy, marshmallows and caramel. Vanilla ice cream, quite buttery with growing white chocolate notes.


Long and creamy with soft ginger and brandy snaps in the finish.


Nose – Apple chews and strawberry laces, a background peat, crushed cold charcoal. Whistle pops and, honestly, instant noodles. It’s as warm and complete as the bunna on the nose; classical.

Body – In some ways Balmenach is as distinctive as Springbank, there’s a big orchard, charcoal and sour wood character. Maybe even a little bong water. The youth is here though, hard and sharp.

Finish – Medium, charred, toffee apples.

This is a gentle but interesting whisky – sweet and sour, light peat and slightly sharp oak.
