Palate: More of the fruit basket over here with a nice measure of apple pie with roasted nectarines, on top of vanilla custard. It’s a bit more ‘exotic’ if you wish with some notes of unripe cantaloupe and a pinch of pepper, wood, then a touch of almonds.
Finish: More melons on the finish, alongside spice and a hint of cinnamon. A distant note of sweet brioche and apple crumble on the linger.
Conclusion: A fruity delight, quite sweet, fresh and lovely and very easy drinking at this low ABV (for a single cask mind you), yet complex enough and showing a fruity side to Balblair. Very nice yet not cheap.
