    C: Balblair tends to be polite and understated - that’s it’s charm. A charmingly good Balblair with decent age [double the current official vintages], and subsequent depth from the mash-y notes.

    N: With less fruitiness than the previous two, we’ve a husky-fungal number with vanilla and beer notes - though Ali specifies it more accurately as Porter.

    T: Malty, toffee, vanilla and soft resins.

    F: A touch more malty>fruitiness, almond sugar coating, Guinness, cheap chocolate and toffee. Some of us noted the finish concluded towards the front of the palate.

    C: Another lovely and dependable Balblair. Scores 87 points, one less than last time in 2017.

    Scores a B
