Whisky Reviews for Balblair 1988

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.09 points

  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruity at first, with a mix of stewed and fresh apples. Pears too. Then Vanilla and marzipan. There is a faint hint of lemon. A pinch of salt. With water the nose gets fruitier. But this goes more towards pineapple and oranges.
    • Taste
      Apples, vanilla. A fresh note from lemon and touch of salt. This is followed by menthol. Water adds grapefruit, but I like it better without water.
    • Finish
      It’s rather short, but still good. Lemon, apples and some menthol elements. With water grapefruit and a somewhat of a bitter edge.

    The nose is soft with light spices, vanilla, brown sugar, and just a hint of marzipan. The taste is mouth-filling and spicy, with chili powder and coriander, cashews, and a hint of maltiness. The malt and chili powder notes linger into the finish, and fade slowly to reveal a touch of brown sugar.
