Whisky Reviews for Balblair 10-year-old GM
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.09 points
- Actually a surprisingly nice older standard Balblair. It’s much more full of aroma’s and taste as you would expect from a 40% whisky. There’s really nothing wrong with this one, it’s not very complex but it’s just pleasant and good. I actually don’t get some of the lower rates for this one.
Fruity, oranges, Galia melon, vanilla. A bit spicy, cinnamon, a bit grassy and floral, a touch of lavender even
Very slight pepper, fruity, oranges, vanilla, honey, some peach, and actually pretty full body for such a low Abv
Still a little pepper, sweet, peach, honey, vanilla, Middlelong. Also some candy sweetness, like Haribo cherries
- An every day dram from the nineties. I have never been dissapointed by these versions. Some are good and some are better!
- More of a standard Balblair. Not as good as the G&M of the 1970's. More % ABV would probably hava add more complexity.
Malty and yeasty. Lots of oak. Sawdust and vanilla. Some melon. Floral notes of violet.
Light and clean. Fruity sweetness of pear and oranges. Slightly peppered. Even some smokiness.
Not that long. Bitter-sweet oakiness. Cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Fresh and sweet in the nose. Sweet floral notes with a spicy sharpness and a nice refreshing citrus. The dram stays rather short but smooth and creamy and a malty sweetness. Easy to drink and good opposite to the sherry lasting and Islay whiskys.
- Malty and spicy aroma, cardamom, cinnamon, peat, sultanas, pecan nuts,
ripe pear and vanilla. Vanilla sweet taste, walnuts, eucalyptus, pepper,
malt, peat and ripe orange. Medium long, malty and herbal end.
