  1. Bomshanka scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    This is the 2004-2015 version of Balblairs bourbon travel retail offering. Tasted alongside another 04 vintage, namely the 2004-2017 edition. Typical Balblair if only a little shy. Takes air in the bottle well, was quite angular when first opened, but rounded off quite well over 6 months.
    • Nose
      83 83
      First ripe pears, heather, beeswax, typical Balblair, fruity notes, tropical fruit, vaguely minerally. Quite faint and fragile nose, but very pleasant. After 10 minutes some malty, bready notes appear. With water things turn brighter and fresher.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Lemon, lime, green apples, pears, papaya, with a light drizzle of maplesyrup, turning to slight bitterness, again some waxes and then some beach pepples and salt.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short to medium, echoing the fruits with the minerality and bitterness and some spicy prickling at the end.
