Whisky Reviews for Balblair 1997
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points
- Price at Distillerie in July 2016 was 120.00GBP.
- The day i tried this at the distillery, the abv was measured at 50.5%
N: Light candy citrus and exquisite porridge. One drop of water releases more floral candy.
T: Youthful and porridgy with green oak notes. Not sharp but rightly firm. Develops on crisp chocolate.
F: Dry vanilla, a little sour - bourbon sour.
C: John MacDonald was personally very pleased with this cask, hence why this particular cask was chosen for the distillery shop. I desperately hoped it would be a SC/CS version of the fabulous 1997[/2008] vintage WB. I was however more delighted with the second 1st release [confusing huh?] of the 1983 vintage WB.
