Whisky Reviews for Balblair 25-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.97 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Two things here:-
    1 - This is a really nice spice/fruit combo of a whisky, tastes good, balance is good and so easy to drink.
    2 - It is an absolute disgrace that Balblair think this is worth £495 WTF, seriously, there is premiumisation and there is being on planet la la land, who does their pricing strategy the Clangers?
    I am afraid this is a perfect example where a brand has aspirations way above its premium worth.
    The whisky is lovely but not even worth half of what they are asking, shamefully overpriced to the point of making me say that if this is the way whisky is going generally then all distillers like this can sod off.
    I have bought many Balblair over the years , never again,
    I think they should take a long hard look at themselves for having a nerve like this.
