Whisky Reviews for Balblair 1978

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.00 points

  1. TomBx did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    According to accompanying letter of Stuart Harvey, Master Blender at Inver House Distillers:

    Youngest spirit in the decanter from Nov. 26, 1978. Maturing in American oak casks for 33 years, then another 5 years in Spanish oak butts.

    Decanter was filled on the occasion of the charity soccer game between Inver House vs. Broxburn Bottlers in the FC Everton Stadium on March 20, 2017. In case anybody needs to know - Inver House lost 2:4

    * Rating of "phoenix" doubtable - possibly a mixup with standard 1978. User doesn't react though.
