Whisky Reviews for Balblair 2006

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.61 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    with water: especially the palate and the finsih call for water quite loudly, in the nose the pear becomes much more present, that could almost be a Willy, in the mouth it becomes softer, the finish is also a bit more harmonious

    Conclusion: If you like pear and vanilla, you will love this whisky. Great barrel, but quite present alcohol. The nose in particular takes a lot of time and also some warmth so that it can develop - 87 points

      woody pear, vanilla, gooseberry, mirabelle plums, subtle honey with powdered sugar, at the beginning you can feel the alcohol, but with a little time and hand warmth it gets fuller and more fruity in the nose, canned pineapples emerge, the oak is there, but reserved, something Cinnamon is palpable, the vanilla is getting stronger and is changing to cookie dough

      strong start with lots of light fruits, then the alcohol grabs, the oak is there too. Especially Williams pear shows up
    • Finish

      medium length, nice fruit, some oak and vanilla on the back
