  1. Max70 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    I'd a little expectation on that due to the positive ratings ...
    I don't know if it depends of my bottle, how it was conserved or some alcohol lost in the years, but I've found it quite sour and mostly similar to a medium level blended.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2011]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85.  My notes state an easy-to-drink dram with some nice OBF but all in all a rather light profile.

    As there are so many different batches and releases of this 5-years old Balblair:  This bottle was imported by Borco-Marken-Import Hamburg and stated a size of 0,75 liters (what is unusual as the normal measure on bottle sizes was 75 cl in Europe instead).
