Whisky Reviews for Blairfindy 1965 BA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.55 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Not perfect, but not too shabby either. Pretty taken by it overall, but not enough to reach that magical 90 point threshold.
    • Nose
      Fairly waxy with a good amount of damp wood and earthiness, as well as sweet orange juice, honey, and quince. Somewhat dusty as well, but also some nice dark forest fruits. A whisper of sweaty yellow cheese, to complicate matters a bit.
    • Taste
      Somewhat dry and aggressive. Tannins and dark spices, mainly cracked black peppercorns. Molasses and espresso notes. Slightly bitter, but a proper oily mouthfeel. Also, there's room for a hint of raspberries, elderflower and orange.
    • Finish
      Lingering burnt caramel and tannins. Medium to long.

    Quote Whiskyfun.com - july 12, 2007:
    Blairfindy 40yo 1965/2006 (51,7%, Blackadder Raw Cask, Sherry cask #1850, 194 bottles) Nose: beeswax and old red wine. ‘smoked toffee’. Mouth: perfect balance but maybe a little drying and rough, tannic. A little rubber as well. Otherwise it’s great whisky. 87 points.

    Probably Fino Cask and Oxidizes fast
