    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Balblair 33 yo 1968/1998 (59.4%, Scotch Malt Whisky Society, #70.4, Faded pot-pourri)  The name’s a little frightening, isn’t it. Now the vintage isn’t, not at all! Colour: gold. Nose: bang. Instant old Balblair goodness. Passion fruits, mangos, papayas, acacia honey, blood oranges… All those sorts of things. Simply brilliant. With water: beautiful whiffs of old wine cellar, a touch of ground coffee, a little sweet Tokaji, this grapefruity combination that’s a little ‘chenin blanc’… Mouth (neat): a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Extreme maracuja and mangos again, then rather more pineapple, then bananas seasoned with a little fresh mint. Perhaps is it a little simple, but everything’s so utterly perfect that we just shan’t care. With water: in the same vein, perhaps a little more towards jellies and sweets than fresh fruits. Finish: long, extremely fresh and fruity. The pineapples are back. Comments: faded pot-pourri? A great old Balblair, with a little more complexity we might have gone even higher. SGP:751 - 92 points.
