Balblair 10 yo

Balblair 10 yo

Distillery Labels, Gordon & Macphail

Single malt - North Highlands
Pale green
43% ABV

Nose: Salt, leather, brown paper, raisins, cloves, plums.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens, slippery, oily.
Tasting: Sweet salty. Vanilla, brown paper, leather, raisins, dates, prunes, plums, hints of pineapples.
Long. Brown paper, dates, prunes, vanilla.


Young, but tastes old! Lots of dried fruit, not as fresh and as tangy as the official Balblairs are, although there is still a nice tart hint of pineapple. Instead, this whisky is sweet, vanilla-laden, and slightly briney.

I like this.
