  1. Blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An excellent one, probably the cask strengh isn't innocent in that. Could have been recommended if the price tag wasn't that heavy...

    Tasted at Whisky Live Paris 2015.
    • Nose
      Punchy, floral, with some violets. Malty and fruity too, with at first citrus, then becomes more exotic. Typical from Balblair's. Not agressive at all despite the ABV.
    • Taste
      Fresh flowers, vanilla from the Ex-bourbon cask. Then some almonds, which isn't that common. Good mouthfeel but a little in the background of the excellent nose.
    • Finish
      Quite long, more sugarry. Elegant.
