    N: Aah, vintage bourbon cask magic from a great decade for Balblair. Fusty/oily, sweet apple & pineapple crumble - bourbon refill yes yes! Develops more oily-phenolic, mineral,....
    T: Soft fruity almost fluffy start. Only a touch sharp but forever gentle and easy with its bourbon cask honey-juice. With water, vanilla to nuttiness & choc ice - so nutty Feast bar then with dried fig/rolls,.... soft dunnage-dry with a slight peppery fresh-heat.
    F: .......more dry choc ice, almost sweaty cardboard, super dry raisins to apricots, a little more fig and dry dunnage. Surprisingly smokey on the finish, old style with a dry woody nut huskiness.
    C: What a series First Cask turned out to be. A case of this please.Scores an A-
