Whisky Reviews for Balblair 10-year-old GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.20 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    50ml official sample, 10yo 70 proof, rectangular flat bottle. 
    • Nose
      Some elegant old sherry hits the nose after a few minutes in the glass (initially very closed). 
    • Taste
      I could chug this all night long. It's certainly a pretty nondescript old whisky with some sherry in it, and if I were to give this to a non-whisky drinking friend, he would certainly said... wow, this is nice and smooth. To the regular whisky drinker, the "oldness" and some OBE will be appreciated. There is also some subtle fruits in this one. If this was cask strength....
    • Finish
      This is where there is weakness, which is to be expected I guess. There is also slight metallic note at the end, in addition to some sawdust.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This is a 10 year old. The review below referencing Serge was for the NAS edition. 

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Old fashioned whisky in the best way it used to be in the old days.
    • Nose
      Dusty, Stewed fruit of figs and dates, Bees wax and old furniture. Delicate oak. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Lots of sweetness. Rich oak. Hints of sherry. A little bit thin as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long. The sweetness remains. Also a little spicy; pepper and nutmeg.
