  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Disappointed unfortunately a little compared to the nose, I'm just not the fan of this classic bitter sherry, but all in all, still a great malt that you should try, seems very time-honored.
    • Nose
      Right oldschool, rarely so clear chocolate had in the nose, right between milk chocolate and dark chocolate, very nice, old leather chair, hazelnut and chestnut, only after 8-10 minutes comes suddenly beautiful fruit, blueberries, orange bitters, then turn in more Direction dark honey, caramel, Toffifee, blood orange
    • Taste
      Orange bitters, everywhere beautiful leather, extremely dry in addition, rosemary, earthy he is as well, polished oak, dry tobacco and dusty dresser, very extreme as far as this is concerned, chestnuts and some Toffifee with nuts vllt.
    • Finish
      Dry still, bitter, chestnut, dark chocolate, leather, tobacco, a few herbs, medium to long

    Balblair 11 / 1965-01 / 2000 34yo Douglas Laing OMC 700ml 40.1% vol. 169btls. JIS This is perfect for the first one! Saying, Balblair 1965 had a sign of gambling! In general, it is more interesting for OMC around here to have gamble, it is funny.It is not interesting only with iron plates.Color: In this series, even Balblair does not feel unexpected, a sign of Lucian Gish. Nose: Oily, soy sauce gish is moderate, absolutely, there is no flower-like feeling Attack: a cake that feels even hot, plenty of chocolate sauce that is preeminent for cake Balblair 5yo PURE I wonder if MALT gets older, is it? What? OBAN's wig and hair of crowded train like ※ OBAN is not Distillery's OBAN, it is "○ バ ァ ー ン" in Japanese. Body: Dalmati maple syrup is a little tight Taste: Violets (violet) and aromas are totally unobtrusive rather than rather confined nuances.The elegance of chestnuts.The harmony of Mitarashi dumplings.The harmony is splendid.The alcoholic feeling is , Somewhat strengthened for frequency, is it helped by that? Fiinish: Not delicious Oil fishy fried chicken! Egg gasoline disappears as a man .. As if it is a man odor of Muamua family who was filled with early morning rural convenience stores, that nuances can not be tasted Balblair! Sometimes, the gambling nature of the first cup is also nice. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyhars3hsead4
