    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Balblair 35 yo 1966/2002 (44%, Douglas Laing Platinum, 207 bottles) Colour: straw. Nose: quite close, as expected, this one being a little fruitier, with also a little more wood influence. Develops more on bananas and vanilla, getting then more camphory and minty. A superb nose in fact, very coherent and compact, that reminds us of the fabulous recent 33 yo and 38 yo OB’s. More exuberant than the G&M and marginally less complex. Mouth: we’re even closer to the G&M now, with just a little more zing (can that be just the extra-1%?). That said, it does get fruitier again after that, with more bananas, vanilla custard, crystallised quinces, dried pears… Surprisingly, the wood is less present on the palate, the whole getting quite hot in fact. Rather exuberant indeed. Finish: rather long, bold, assertive, on caramelised bananas and a little white pepper as well as hints of mustard, with an oaky signature. Another excellent version, maybe not as explosive and magic as the 38 yo OB, that is. And less honeyed. 89 pointshttp://www.whiskyfun.com/archivefebruary07-2.html#150207
