Balblair 2000 Single Cask #0191
Part of a Balblair tweet tasting this 2000 vintage cask 0191 is from a cask that previously held a peated islay whisky..
I didnt get as much smoke as others did, its more malty to me but this is still lovely and sweet too.
Thanks again to Balbair for the opportunity to taste these not yet and maybe not to be released drams.
My first thoughts were hints of mature cheddar cheese with tomato plant leaves & hints of fruits of fig, mango skin and dragon fruit with hints of malt loaf and almost some smoked fish
This grows and grows on the palate from gentle fruity to smoky malty seafood and definite wood spice
Spicy and woody
