Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic and appetising. Hints of the sea. Some earthiness. Surprisingly peaty.
Palate
Seed cake. Textured, sweet. Some creaminess. Vanilla.
Finish
Lemony. Slightly sharp. A touch of salt.
Comment
For a whisky that is very light when young, this matures surprisingly well and for long periods

Jim Murray

Nose
Butterscotch, cumquats and almonds combine to offer a most tantalising and complex nose.
Palate
Shuddering arrival of firm oak. Softened by a voluptuous sweet malt concentrate.
Finish
Finely balanced with some smoke and chocolate drifting serenely over the sweet malt and oak.
Comment
Unquestionably one of the finest Balblairs released.
