Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Toasty with dried orange peel leading into spice,sandalwood and a touch of nettle. Like a warm fruit pie cooling on the windowsill.
Palate: Though there's more on the nose than the palate this is clean and quite intense. Ginger in syrup,and good flow of flavours. Lightly chewy and sweet with barley sugar and just a little rubber in the background.
Finish: Good length and decent balance.
Comment: Another great Balblair.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity,deep. Dry apricot,orange marmalade. Deep,intense. An elegant interlacing of soft oaky tones andcreamy fudge. Touch of vetiver.
Palate: Smooth at start then getting crisp. Oak shows up more than the nose would let expect. An earthy note. Rich.Water brings out chocolate notes.
Finish: Spicy,dry with a firm but mastered oakiness. Spicy.
Comment: A rich and deep character with an enticing nose and a more rigid palate. Give it time.
