    My first Balblair and it did not disappoint.
    • Nose
      Simple and clean. pear, vanilla with floral notes.
    • Taste
      Pear, Caramell, vanilla, berries. In some way it reminds me a little bit of younger Glen Grants(the fruity notes).
    • Finish
      Not very long, with a little sweet oak

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    2018 version of a classic!
    pastry sweetness, and simplicity.
    • Nose
      sweet spices, honey, it's even creamy
      wood and fruit on cooked apples, and a little orange, then red berries
    • Taste
      caramel, a little mold typical of a sherry cask
      still a little wet wood and more pastry spices, a grassy side spring, the fruits are more here on a compote by the fire!
    • Finish
      a little spice, some wood, always the salted butter caramel
      fruits cooked in the end.
