Words of Whisky (83)

This is a characterful distillate, yet it might be a little on the safe side.
Nose
Spices, such as cloves and nutmeg, stand out initially. That’s quickly followed by a faint minerality, gentle floral notes and an elegant zestiness. Barley husks linger in the background, as well as candle wax and resin. Finally whispers of overripe banana and butterscotch.
Taste
Arriving on notes of peanuts, some white pepper and ginger. Subtle citrus notes, then some white chocolate, fudge and melted butter. Also some underripe pineapple, more barley husks and stewed pears.
Finish
Medium length. A faint waxiness, some gentle yellow fruit and quinces.

BOW (86)

It is rare for a distillery from the heart of Speyside to announce its first whiskies. What's even more remarkable is that these whiskies aren't very young at all.
Ballindalloch Single Malt Whisky:
In the Speyside region, some of the most renowned distilleries are found, their whiskies highly popular worldwide. Ballindalloch Single Malt Whisky will carve out its own distinct place.

Ballindalloch Single Malt Whisky:
Ballindalloch Distillery is considered a (very) small distillery. Production capacity has been 100,000 liters of pure alcohol per year in recent years and average fermentation period of 130 hours ensures the stills are filled with very pure wort. The stills are slowly heated, and the boiling point is tightly controlled to ensure that the alcohol vapors are light and pure as they pass over the tops. All this is done to impart maximum flavor to the eventual whisky on a pure base.
The whisky then matures naturally in the finest casks in a warehouse on the estate. Given the production capacity of this small yet highly refined distillery, we will receive few or no other bottlings this year. So, take advantage now of these very first releases, specially crafted for the Benelux countries.

Tasting Note:
Exotic yellow fruit, resin, and pine mingle in the nose, with hints of baked banana and caramel. The palate delivers rich flavors of yellow fruit, caramel, and white chocolate, balanced by a subtle pine note. Smooth finish leaves you craving more.
