Andytka3
Connoisseur Andytka3 Review note
26 Feb 2018 5:02 am
Andytka3 gave this whisky 85 points

Well married of chocolate with caramel with lighter notes of pleasing beehive. Quite flawless and elegant with fragrants old book bouquet. Gentle, soft elegant Balblair as always with harmless milky spicy at medium length.


Well-well, last dram at Whisky Live 2017.

St. Pauli gave this whisky 87 points

Light style, as could be expected. It's all pleasant though. It's not too sweet, and has a nice acidity. Grass, hay, mint, pear, apple, marzipan, vanilla, and a spicy edge of pepper.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

fresh, fruity, citrus, traces of dried fruits. vanilla sugar.

Taste

nice, good body, juicy, lime and lemon juice, quite some spices as well, some bitter grassy note

Finish

medium on some wood dryness that is very European oak driven

Comments

the sherry is hardly noticable. very enjoyable malt that makes you work a bit with it. not a lazy whisky.
Another strange fact is that this bottles is labelled 2nd Release but was bottled in 2015. The original 2nd release was bottled in 2014. This should have some more months in the sherry casks.
