Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature and deep with a superb layering effect: ripe fleshy autumn fruits. Then fudge, citrus and a leather/bung cloth note.
Palate: Deep with good grip. Real power and a figgy depth, but then it lifts once more into cherry stone/maraschino. One to sip slowly.
Finish: Long, silky.
Comment: Yet another superb Balblair which chimes perfectly with the official bottlings.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Nutty, oaky. Malt and oak are well integrated. Sherry in the back. Strong coffee.
Palate: Rich with lots of caraway and curry (not revealed by the nose!). Warm feel.
Finish: Dry oaky and spicy.
Comment: Quite a warming fellow. A real character. For winter... or a rotten summer!
