    Why do I wonder that there isn't much left in the bottle? This Balblair belongs in my prey scheme and I can find absolutely no missing notes. Alcohol strength fanatics definitely won't get their money's worth here. It is pleasant, tasty and mild. A really very good droplet.

    Starts fresh and fruity slowly turning bitter and sour. Drinkable but not for me

    Nice daily Dram. Nothing very Special but easily drinkable.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fruity with Orange zest and sweet dried fruits. Classic Sherry influence
    • Taste
      84 84
      Nothing remarkable but also nothing bad.
      Sweet, fruity and not too alcoholic.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long with the Sherry influence in the later stage. Some would say boring....

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm: Nose: 2/5 Mouth and finish: 3/5 Whisky n ° 1749
    • Nose
      Powerful and fragrant (caramel, cooked wine ...) it is also a little brutal, even nagging.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, relief. A balance is created between spices a little rough and austere and a certain roundness.
    • Finish
      Satisfactory final, in the continuity of the mouth. Correct length.

  8. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Malt, leather, seasoning -> Not so mean ...
    • Nose
      Christmas cake, ginger, apple, spices, honey
    • Taste
      Full, but oily and spicy, malt with honey, leather, oak, dried ginger, smoked bacon, some bitter orange
    • Finish
      Medium to long, dry, bread, flour, seasoning, warm

  9. vojt466 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    So this is beautifully smooth, deliciously spicy and fruity, a pity of that prize.
    • Nose
      Apples, pears, honey, vanilla, slightly citrus, very delicate spices - beautiful fruity aroma
    • Taste
      Again beautiful and fruity - apples, citruses, vanilla, delicate spices
    • Finish
      In a smooth reverberation of fruit, woodiness, malt and how different than the delicate spices that long persist in the mouth

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Warehouse of seasoned leather in the air, pleasingly deep and thick
    aroma of peace. Various elements well married into the drops. Lush of
    raisin and banana creaminess with light white pepper on the top half.
    After breath, toffee reveals with a touch of crushed floral, lightly
    fungi but in a good way.


    Palate:- Weighty and juicy, creaminess carry on from aroma to the
    palate. Flakes of sherry spices laid by forestry. Complex, gentle and
    contended.

    Finish:- Medium - long length. Light burst of ripe fruits reflux at the back. A gem.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
