This is the second of a couple of reviews of Balblair Whisky after taking part in a Tweet Tasting organised by Alembic Comms who are doing a grand job promoting both Whisky and Beer in Scotland.
This second sample (the first one was a Balblair 2002) is the simply stunning balblair 1975, a mash of 7 100% American Oak Sherry casks laid down for sleep in the same year i was born.
My tasting notes are shown below but i Love this whisky and desperately want a bottle.
grassy and floral almost grain/lowland like, some honey and vanilla in there too with a touch of green leaves
Palette Perfumed flowers fresh herbs oaky and quite dry with a touch of banana in there too
Finish is Meaty but very mellow with no mouth prickle, lasts a long time although quite drying
