So much whisky, so little time | Singapore | Tasting Notes

Balmenach 1988, 25 yo, Signatory Vintage

This is bottled for the Whisky Exchange, cask no. 1132, which yielded 187 bottles.

That’s 130.9 out of 250 litres after 25 years, slightly over half full. Angels were thirsty on this one?

Nose Nose: All sweet and fruity, marmalade, stewed fruits in syrup, cinnamon. eucalyptus. Bit of funk at the back of the nose too, like fresh compost. With water, becomes more flowery and honied.

Taste Palette: Thick and chewy, jam and jamaica cake. A dessert whisky? Nice tannins to hold the act together. Some flints, some grassiness. With water, cereals, chrysanthemum tea and biscuits.

Finish Finish: Long and spicy, in a sweet dessert way.

 

Score 80
