  3. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    ‘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.

    Scores an A-
