  1. valery77 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      82 82
      Fresh apple, caramel barberry, vanilla. Sour berries. Sweet pie with apples. Slightly spirituous. 21
    • Taste
      77 77
      Spirituous, the first sip of even scalding. Then you get used to it, everything becomes not so bad. Boiled condensed milk, sour berry juice, generously diluted with alcohol. Lemon. 19
    • Finish
      85 85
      From medium to long. Suddenly, a hint of salt is added. Warming, pleasant. 22.
      Balance - 19. More likely, non-drinkable. More like an Irishman or a spacer than a Highlander. Some razboltanny: a good nose, a floppy taste, but surprisingly nice finish.

  4. dRambo scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Fairly mature for his age, barely alcoholic, quite full-bodied, long finish - yummy
    • Nose
      Malt, roasted cereals, apples, pears, lemon zest, oak, fruity fresh, light, clean
    • Taste
      malty, quite complex oak with a lot of fruity lemon zest, green apples, subtle sweetness, spicy bourbon casein, slightly grassy, ​​slight waxy notes, pepper, slight bitterness
    • Finish
      Warming, spicy, dry, a lot of herbal tart oak flavor - lemon is eternally on the tongue

  5. puusj scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    Smells spirity and vanilla, small sour / lime. Tastes sweet at first, but there is some spice. Finish gives a bit more complexity where the sweet and the spice come together.

  7. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Yes it’s young and lacks depth. But it’s also vibrant, fun and drinkable. 

    They bothered to put a vintage on the bottle (age is calculable) rather than create a fancy name and equal fancy story around this whisky. No instead Balblair gives you a natural coloured whisky with a vintage. I have to praise them for that.

    I’ve tasted this in a horizontal tasting of the 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004. They are all quite similar but not the same.
    • Nose
      A fresh, young, fruity and subtle whisky with aromas of a faint whiff of fresh smoke (almost BBQ like), coumarin, citrus, vanille, fresh fruits, apple, pear, lemon peels, a slight herbal tone, earthy and subtle oak.
    • Taste
      A spicy, sweet, fruity and young whisky with aromas of white pepper, ginger, cherries, citrus, berries (bramble, red currants), red apple, backed apple, green banana, cereals, candied ginger, cinnamon, cardboard, pineapple, floral tones, tannins (its quite dry), peach, more pepper (even chili pepper) and subtle oak.
    • Finish
      A medium long and peppery, dry finish with aromas of chili peppers, white pepper, hot ginger, vanilla, tannins, backed apples, apple juice, tannins a wood spice.
