Balmenach 1983 Bottling Note

This Balmenach packs a whopping twenty-seven years of aging in a refill hogshead cask. Balmenach is a distillery that rarely gets the attention it deserves, thankfully Douglas Laing have given it some prominence here.

The Old Malt Cask range began as a release of fifty bottlings in 1998 to commemorate Douglas Laing's fiftieth anniversary. Today they offer many, many more. All bottlings in the range are non-chill filtered and contain no naughty colouring.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The nose opens sweetly with treacle and glazed apple pie leading to richer dried fruits and orange peel.

Palate: Barley and cereal notes with the faintest suggestion of smoke form the backbone of this aged Balmenach. Then there are raisins and spice gunning it towards the finish.

Finish: The finish is long; after mixed spice there is toffee, barley sugar and creamy grist.

Overall: This Balmenach has loads of cerealy notes off-set by fruit and a warming sweetness. Furthermore, this malt possesses good balance that ensures all the flavours play together nicely.
