Insider knowledge: Balblair 2003 - 1st Release whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Balblair 2003 - 1st Release whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Bright aromas of delicate flowers, light citrus blossom and a trickle of honey.
Palate: Oranges and lemons, fresh and fruity. More honey? Yes indeed!
Finish: A fairly spicy finish.
Overall: Classic Balblair brilliance.
