Whisky Reviews for Balblair 1997
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.57 points
- In direct comparison with the Handbottling Cask 1440 I liked it better in the finish and in the nose.
- Still available at the distillery shop for 120£ (July 2016) but it's cask #1714 now (refill bourbon bottled at 50,5% ABV).
- Great Balblair and much better than some of the older vintages of 75, 83 and 89.
Buttery, fruity sherbet sweetness on the nose.
Seems to get stronger in the glass, lemon, lime touch of menthol.
Jammy and very syrupy, big mouthfeel. Orange, buttercream and a little milk chocolate.
Gets creamier and the fruit develops nicely.
Long, very smooth and moreish.
