Balmenach 2008 is part of the Connoisseurs Choice Collection of the independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail. This light Speyside whiskey is characterized by a fine balance between sweets and spices. The fragrance opens with sherry cream brulee, apple and lemon. In the mouth come the herbs properly reflected, this is supported by butterscotch, banana, chocolate and bitter. The finish is medium, sweet and spicy.
