Balmenach – 2001 – 12 years – 46,00%

Douglas of Drumlanrig 
Distillation : 11/2001 – Mise en bouteille : 02/2014 – Fût n° : 10301  – Alcool : 46%

The style of the whisky Balmenach: The Whisky is lightly peated and very ornate, even with an herbaceous note. Without aging in sherry casks, it can be enjoyed as an aperitif, digestif rather otherwise.

Balmenach Distillery
Près de Cromdale, au milieu de la région du Speyside, la distillerie Balmenach est située entre Grantown-on-Spey et Bridge of Avon et à proximité de l’A95.
Balmenach compte six alambics, trois wash stills de 16000 litres et trois spirit stills de 10500 litres chauffés à la vapeur.
Sur les quatre distilleries achetées par Inver House dans les années 1990, Balmenach à été la moins bien traitée, alors même que certaines rumeurs faisaient d’elle le futur porte-drapeau du groupe. Son distillat déborde depuis toujours d’arômes et de saveurs puissants, mais elle demeure un peu oubliée. Le whisky de Balmenach est légèrement tourbé et très fleuri, voire avec une note herbacée.

The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
