    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).

  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Great Balblair and much better than some of the older vintages of 75, 83 and 89.
    • Nose
      Buttery, fruity sherbet sweetness on the nose.

      Seems to get stronger in the glass, lemon, lime touch of menthol.
    • Taste
      Jammy and very syrupy, big mouthfeel. Orange, buttercream  and a little milk chocolate.

      Gets creamier and the fruit develops nicely.
    • Finish
      Long, very smooth and moreish.
