Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)

    Nose: Sweet and green smoke at first: freshly sawn branches newly tossed on to a bonfire of burning pine. Hints of jelly-baby fruitiness develop, along with Vick's Vaporub, honey and lemon lozenges and white toast with honey. The lighter notes at the front obscure but don't hide a darker background of rich smoke.


    Palate: Savoury smoke to start: smoked ham and signed lemons. White pepper heat mixes with bicycle-tire inner tubes, sharp lemon curd and a hint of creosoted fence. A bubble of black liquorice rises from the depths, bursting to reveal blackcurrants and anise.


    Finish: Tar and char fade to leave bittersweet liquorice and lemon butter sauce.


    Comment: Softer than many Ballechins, this brings together sweet and savoury notes, all wrapped up in a smoky blanket.
