Balmenach Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Founded in 1824, Balmenach is one of Speyside's most traditional distilleries. In 1930, they welcomed a little innovation in the form of a Saladin Box that allowed the malting process to become economically friendly. What can we say? It's a mash up between Tron and Futurama's idea of how the internet started. A visual spectacle of neon line-drawing of parody retail buildings like: The Nile, Disaster of Malt and Cowgate Liquor. On the Tron-like bikes are familiar whisky faces working through a stack of whisky reviews and a Twitter feed.
Nose: A sweet nose with subtle aromas of freshly baked bakewell tart.
Taste: Instantly spicy with tropical fruit juice emerging.
Finish: The spices give way to juicy pears and cream, followed by a long dry finish.
