The Balblair bandwagon continues.
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Rich with positive mature notes and an oily quality to it.Honey,caramelised fruits and lightly herbal. In time there's a note that brings to mind the interior of an expensive car along with dried peach. Complex.
Palate: Creamy and soft with a gentle unfolding on the tongue.Highly complex and layered. Some light smokiness,oak shavings and with water a real silkiness develops.
Finish: Cinnamon and citrus zest.
Comment: The Balblair bandwagon continues.
Nose: Tangy. Slightly butyric. Sour milk. Reminds me of some old dry cider. A peppery hint.
Palate: Oak has the word. A faint sweet malty note swept by dry oak. Then soothing soft spices flavour puts the palate back.\rin balance.Water makes the\rtexture mellower
Finish: Dry,.oaky with a touch of dry apricot.
Comment: Quite sour and grumpy at start with an overwhelming oaky character. A dash of water makes it more amiable.
