Quite a shy whisky but elegant and well knitted. Avoid water though.

Comment: Quite a shy whisky but elegant and well knitted. Avoid water though.
Nose: Delicate and floral. Marshmallow, damp (freshly washed) linen, then kiwi fruit, sweet persimmon, subtle citrus and talcum powder.

Finish: Fresh, lime.
Comment: A very subtle, and discreet Balblair but another addition to what has become\ra compelling range.
