Nose
Mature and deep with a superb layering effect: ripe fleshy autumn fruits. Then fudge, citrus and a leather/bung cloth note.
Palate
Deep with good grip. Real power and a figgy depth, but then it lifts once more into cherry stone/maraschino. One to sip slowly.
Finish
Long, silky.
Comment
Yet another superb Balblair which chimes perfectly with the official bottlings.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Nutty, oaky. Malt and oak are well integrated. Sherry in the back. Strong coffee.
Palate
Rich with lots of caraway and curry (not revealed by the nose!). Warm feel.
Finish
Dry oaky and spicy.
Comment
Quite a warming fellow. A real character. For winter… or a rotten summer!
