    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Balblair 1966/2006 (43%, Gordon & MacPhail) Colour: pale straw. Nose: very nice right away, with something wild and animal. Civet, game, truffle, wet dog, my beloved pu-erh tea… Faint sulphur but nothing unbearable. A very pleasant profile, really old style, with lots of personality, complexity and depth. Hints of metal as well as a little mint and whiffs of coal smoke.Mouth: starts all on liquorice sticks and all kinds of roots. Really earthy, with also hints of peat and quite some mint again. A rather beautiful bitterness (chlorophyll) and quite some oak but a nice one. Maybe just a tad drying. Finish: not too long but complex and ‘interesting’, with salty and herbal notes (mastic, olive oil, grains, salted liquorice and not too ripe bananas). Gets just a tad too cardboardy and drying but let’s remember it’s 40 years old. In short, I like this antique malt quite a lot, even if a few more degrees would have given it a little more oomph. 89 points.

    "An independent bottling of 1966 vintage Balblair by whisky veterans

    Gordon & Macphail. This one is about 40 years old and should be

    something quite special."
