  14. barryfox915 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Old gold-amber.
    Nose: Intense, rich, on toffee, caramel, chocolate,
    orange, honey, with light floral notes.
    Taste: Very smooth, rich, complex, on
    walnuts, nutmeg, cloves and other spices, leather, tangerine, and some honey.
    The finish is long, slightly dry, rich, nutty, spicy, with some heather, honey
    and pineapples.
    General Impression: An excellent whisky, rich, complex, very
    sherried, but without being rubbery. I enjoyed it very much.

    A chocolate dram. The well known fruits of Balblair are hidden behind a massive attack of dark chocolate - well balanced and enjoyable !
