    A straightforward and tasty dram, this Balblair from Blackadder was loaded with fruit and chocolate with hints of cream and herbal tobacco in the background. The mouthfeel was lighter than I expected and the finish a tad short. The profile was a bit sweet, and the dram a bit hot— though not in an overpowering manner— but besides those relatively minor deviations from my personal preferences, I thought there was a lot to love on this dram.

    Mental Image: Bunch Fruit Preserve Tasting
    • Nose
      Fruit, chocolate, and a sweet-sour vinegar twang. Figgy jam and chocolate candies wafted out of the glass to the dancing tune of Tootsie rolls, sour plums, and cherries. Hints of cedarwood wrapped around overripe fruits, sticky toffee, and caramel candies. A slight wet-leather funk appeared between strawberry jam, sweetened condensed milk, and maple syrup.
    • Taste
      Medium to light body with berries, tobacco, and chocolate. Fruit preserves with a hint of cream cheese opened proceedings with notions of English muffins and toast. Strawberry jam stood out among dates, figs, black cherries, and blackberries while mellow herbal pipe tobacco— more like leather inundated with the aroma— rose in the background. Chocolate-covered candies and Tootsie rolls lingered at the end with hints of pine, sour cherries, and salted plums.
    • Finish
      Lingering notes of cherry and chocolate cordials.

    What a great whisky. Silky creamy sherry with earthy notes. The nose is a bit unclear but the taste is wonderfully full.

    One of the best I've ever had on. Contains all kinds of flavors. Super complex. Awesome.
