Whisky Reviews for Blairfindy 1976 BA

  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes: Nose: Dark and clean, aromatic wood, with black tea, maple syrup, dried fruit and nuts. Pretty Christmas, I think, with oranges, dried fruit and a lot of malt. Glenfarclas? Absolute! All flavors are surprisingly modest, very elegant, but somewhat restrained, which may not really settle in the glass after some time. Warmed up in the hand are apricots, honey and fine floral notes.
    Mouth: More powerful than expected, balanced, elegant, now with clear wood, almost charcoal-like and astringent. Malt, heather, marzipan and nutmeg, the fruity tones are now hardly available and show up at best by the impression of sugared grapefruit.
    Finish: Medium long, dry, with some orange zest, nut and Demerara sugar.
    Conclusion: I think that was the longest tasting of a single malts I've ever had. This was because it took almost an eternity for this drop to open and reveal its flavors. Granted, but then quite detailed notes have come about. On the whole, the nose, with its wonderful elegance, was also the strength of this Blairfindy, which unfortunately lacked a bit of strength and variety in the taste. Overall, something understatet, I would say. https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/
