Whisky Reviews for Balblair 1990 FoM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.31 points

  1. Fight65 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Unfortunately, after this experiment, the fine Balblair is no longer recognizable. In my opinion, this attempt was not worth it, but often it is a matter of luck that comes out in such an attempt.

  4. malthead-sven scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I like the fresh note surprisingly well, hint at a pure Bourbon barrel storage, about 15 years, 46-48%
    • Nose
      Blind tasting! sweet syrup, somehow reminiscent of bourbon, then dusty, pineapple, whipped cream, sawn wood, honey, peppermint pastilles, a hint of roasted almonds, vanilla
    • Taste
      very strong and full, limes, dry and fresh, little sweet
    • Finish
      quite sour, again pineapple, a bunch of herbs behind, medium long
