What's in a name? Balblair 1997 whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Balblair 1997 whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Crisp, herbal, berries and barley, nutty vanilla.
Palate: Sweet, a little earthen quality with a fruity robustness. More vanilla, but now creamier, and gently infused with the oak.
Finish: Silken with warm pastries.
This is very good stuff! Almost as good as the 89'!
There's too little in the nose and the delivery in the palate is also not that much.
Kinda disappointing, way to young and both nose and palate is way to strong.
It tastes nothing like 21 years old Glenfarclas.
I don´t believe none of these guys can appreciate such an exquisite single malt... delightful delivery, smooth and vanilla to the palate.... incredibly smooth for a relatively young malt... I regularly taste Macallan, Dalwhinnie, Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Chivas 18 and Buchanan's 18... or maybe a Gold Label... and one of my favourites is Caol Ila 12... but this Balblair is a truly delicious liquor for anyone. Newbies or more Refined Malt Drinkers. This Malt is worth every single Pound or Penny you pay for, if you know Malt, otherwise just go with a $25 Bells. But if you want something delicious and give yourself a treat BALBAIR is a great choice! And that´s THE TRUTH!
