  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Balblair hosted the Highland Whisky Festival on 13th of May.
    Our visit was at the 15th, and this was included in the tasting.
    I felt that the 11YO fill your own cask was a much better dram (both tour guides agreed) and at less than half the price the choise of what to bring home was easy.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Sweet yellow fruits and a little bourbon vanilla.
      I found the alc to be surprisingly present for a 22YO.
      Some darker notes of scorched caramel and fudge.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Honey sweetness, darker than the nose implies on chocolate and roasted nuts.
      It's cask strenght at almost 57%, but even with a couple of drops of water I found it a bit sharp.
    • Finish
      86 86
      About average medium lenght.
      Fatty nuts and chocolate, and again that not too favourable "burnt" caramel.
