Balblair 40 yo 1965/2007

Balblair 40 yo 1965/2007

Anniversary Selection (Single Malts of Scotland), Specialty Drinks Ltd

Single malt - North Highlands
47.7% ABV

Nose: Black tea, sherry, glace cherries, walnuts, fruitcake, hints of house dust.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, smooth, slightly viscous.
Tasting: Sweet. Orange peel, honey, apricots, prunes, hints of peach, hints of brown paper.
Finish: Medium. Vanilla, melon, chilli.


This tastes old. Like something which has lain forgotten in the attic for years - it actually tastes dusty and wrapped in brown paper. Great, great fruit in it though, I started salivating once I got a close look at the colour, and I wasn't disappointed. Surprising little spicy kick in the finish too. Very nice indeed.


I like this a lot!
