    almost an old bottle of whisky on cream, caramel and soft wood!
    yellow fruit compote, slight fruity sensation of fact,
    a little fine smoke, spices that amplify this, a few blades of grass and the annoying feeling of having a good product a little too watery!

    a good dram that could serve as a starter, a height almost!

    Colour: Old gold.
    Nose: Round, on juicy malt, dry peat smoke, and ripe fruits
    (peach and tangerine).
    Taste: Malty, smoky, very smooth, floral, slightly
    grassy and floral, and on juicy malt. The finish is medium, creamy, on juicy
    malt, old peat smoke and ripe fruits.
    General Impression: An old Balblair,
    very smooth and almost silky, with some pleasant peat smoke. Some additional
    %ABV would have probably revealed more complexity.

    This Balblair does not reconcile me especially with the old whiskys. It's not bad, but that does not carry me away.
    • Nose
      Nose rather erased, the scents are discrete. I prefer more power, more grandeur to the nose.
      Varnished wood in the foreground. Burnt caramel, overcooked apricot compote. Liquorice afterwards.
    • Taste
      An aqueous attack mixed with spicy spices. Yellow fruit jam dominates.
    • Finish
      Final on the bitterness of cocoa powder and on the wood dust.
