Whisky Reviews for Balblair 1999

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.87 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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.

    — at Whisky Live Singapore.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    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.

  5. Mascht scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Flowers, lilac, heavy

      balanced, typical Balblair

  8. zinaf scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • 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
