Floral, fruity (pineapple, bananas, apples), marzipan
Creamy, oily, vanilla, fruity
Medium long, spicy, cinnamon
- ‘Simple, subtle, sublime’
N: Incredibly light and floral, perfect for the single malt beginner and plenty to interest the enthusiast.
T: Taste as the nose - subtle sweetness, banana/lime combo and beeswax - simple, subtle, sublime
F: That subtlety lingers, a perfect balance from start to finish with a surprise spice hit just before the close - medium length
C: For me, the ’97 [1st release] is the benchmark for modern young Balblair’s.
