    Serge from Whisky Fun (14 Nov 2016):
    Balblair 2000/2014 (53%, OB, exclusive to Switzerland, cask #0575)
    Indeed, a single cask for our good friends (and neighbours) the
    Helvetians.
    Colour: straw. Nose: it’s the 2005, only at a higher
    strength, with a little more minerality. Apples, pears, clay, barley.
    With water: and moist bread. Greengages. Mouth (neat): truly excellent.
    Even more ‘barley eau-de-vie’ than the 2005, but with a deeper earthy
    side, some rhubarb and kiwi, and touches of green pepper. Perhaps a
    little tinned pineapple, one of the distillery’s markers in my book.
    With water: and here come the citrus fruits. Grapefruit and lemon
    Jell’Os, orange drops, lemongrass. Finish: medium, fruity, bright,
    refreshing. In other words, more-ish. Comments: probably one of the most
    ‘natural’ malts out there. A very excellent young Balblair, in all its
    naked glory. SGP:541 - 87 points.

    Gorgeous Balblair in cask strength. Special bottling for Switzerland. Untypical Balblair with a brilliant, smoky finish. It comes from an American oak barrel by previously a smoky malt was removed. In the nose dominate vanilla and citrus notes and light smoke. In the taste honey sweetness, which then turns into a long, sweet, slightly peppery smoke flavor. A Balblair that you will not forget !!!
