  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    An old bottling of Balblair from the 1990's. Not the lively fruity and juicy notes as we know of modern Balblair bottlings. This dram has its moments (in particular on the palate) but misses real character.
    • Nose
      Lots of maltiness of grain and cereal as a start. Followed with hints of cedar wood and barley sugar. It takes a while after some shy notes of orange and tangerines come through. Old leather as well.
    • Taste
      Distinguished soft notes of peach and dried apricots intermingled with all kinds of nuttiness. Candied apple and quite a lot of cinnamon. Gingerbread. Fudgy notes of toffee and treacle at the background. It's all a little weak on the palate.
    • Finish
      Not that long. A little nutmeg. Roasted almonds. Bitter chocolate at the end.

    This is really sweet but a little thin on the palate.

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    It's okay, but no remarkable whisky at all. Light and thin, easy starters-whisky.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Fruity, oranges, citrus. Some sweet vanilla as well. Light and not very strong nose.
    • Taste
      79 79
      The taste and body follow the nose: Light, a little weak, thin mouthfeel, only a very little pepper. Sweet, vanilla and honey, some fruit like peach as well.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Still a very little pungent, sweet, peach, honey, some oranges, vanilla. Middle long.

  8. Allandale scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A light body.
    • Nose
      Fresh. Salty. Vanilla. A hint of chocolate.
    • Taste
      Malty dryness. Shortbread with sugar. Custard. Summer pudding.
    • Finish
      Concentrated fruity dryness. Summer pudding again. Comforting.

  10. The Macallan scored this whisky 67 points Connoisseur

    Quite pleasant this one, a beginners malt
    • Nose
      Some sweet estery notes, vanillins and a hint of spiced wood
    • Taste
      Sweeet, some fruityness and a gentle chewy oaky dryness
    • Finish
      Some sweet vanillins, little spicyness, drying.
