  1. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Body: drying.
    • Nose
      Very Cedary. Again. Complex  also.
    • Taste
      Cedary, but also spicy and liquorice-like. The rich spiciness rounds out the flavours. With complex notes.
    • Finish
      Robust, long. take your time.

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Old Balblair is so fantastic! Thanks Lodewijk for letting me re-tasting this real treat after a remarkable weekend at Texel.
    • Nose
      Gorgeous dusty and 'old' leafy nose for a start. Later on more on dried apricots, figs and dates. Raisins. Herbs of camphor and camomile.
    • Taste
      Overripe apples. Oranges. Subtle grapefruit bitterness intermingled with herbs of carraway. Artisan ciders, followed by robust sandal wood oakiness which is really mouthcoating. Pine at the background.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering. Quite dry. A little nutmeg. Cinnamon. Some mint chocolate at the end.
