Whisky Reviews for Balblair 21-year-old GM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.14 points

  1. RL_whisky scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This needs time. Very nice complexity, which reveals several layers over time. Sweet, light apple hint and banana start things out (the banana is far more in the background than with the 10 year old version).

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very nice Blablair, who at least 3% more would have done very well. But the fruitiness and mixture makes her a nice overall picture.
    • Nose
      Has directly a beautiful fruity sweetness with slight Esthernoten, mango, vanilla, papaya, Lychees, Birnendrops, of course, not very kräfig, unfortunately, only 43%, a little fresh cut flowers
    • Taste
      Mango, delicious Birnendrops, yellow apple with shell, very gently cinnamon and brown sugar, dried pineapple and apple, not too complex, but what he does, he makes very nice, yellow plum
    • Finish
      It gets fuller, dry-exotic, with a nice light spice, green and yellow apple, mango and some peppery oak, yummy, medium long

  4. WhiskyAgent scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    immediately after opening the bottle, this dram exposes its sweet and fruity nose. it needs some breathing for the palate to open. palate honors the nose with a medium long finish. a beautiful whisky.
