Balmenach 12 yo (2001/2014), SMWS 48.54, 57,4 %

This whisky is called ”Milkshake and medicine” and comes from a 1st fill barrel. 229 bottles were made. Barley and alcohol in the smell. Almost like Spirit. Not much else is going on. Some vanilla and meltet honey in the end.

Some oak comes forward in the taste. Not much else new here. Some sugars in the finish… ZzZzZz… Not bad quality but very boring.

Give this some water. It mellows the alcohol and brings some sugary notes forward in the smell. This is not a whisky that will be remembered. I will give this 79/100 (19/20/21/19).
