Palate: Round and full body. Malty and sweet. Chocolate notes. Salty.
Finish: Medium long. Malty and coating. Creamy. Salt.
Comments: Defenately a dessert. This dram with a chocolatecake would be niiiice...
Great notes, Bullie.
I have also wanted to try the Balblair 16 yo. It is good to read the comments. At the Toronto Tasting Tower, I sampled the Balblair 24 yo. It was one tasting, but I know I quite enjoyed it. Bullie, out of curiousity, how would you describe the 16 yo colour/appearance? I think I described the 24 yo as "rich, golden-honey."
Thanks Wendy. Full gold would be appropriate I think. But as with taste, colours are quite individual. Perhaps some would call it amber.
If you have the chance, try the 38yo Balblair OB. It's one amazing dram.
I have no notes on that one though. Just enjoyed it 3 or 4 times...
And I agree with kallaskander:
Anyway it has potential to become one of the bigger malts.
