Nose
Toasty with dried orange peel leading into spice,sandalwood and a touch of nettle. Like a warm fruit pie cooling on the windowsill.
Palate
Though there's more on the nose than the palate this is clean and quite intense. Ginger in syrup,and good flow of flavours. Lightly chewy and sweet with barley sugar and just a little rubber in the background.
Finish
Good length and decent balance.
Comment
Another great Balblair.

Nose
Fruity,deep. Dry apricot,orange marmalade. Deep,intense. An elegant interlacing of soft oaky tones and creamy fudge. Touch of vetiver.
Palate
Smooth at start then getting crisp. Oak shows up more than the nose would let expect. An earthy note. Rich.Water brings out chocolate notes.
Finish
Spicy,dry with a firm but mastered oakiness. Spicy.
Comment
A rich and deep character with an enticing nose and a more rigid palate. Give it time.
