Balblair 1997 1st Release

Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland

Tasted December 7, 2017
5.0 out of 5 stars
(This review is for the 1997 Single Cask 1108, bottled at 58.4% ABV) I have to borrow neuroscientific language to properly review this scotch: the dopamine load in the reward centre of my brain following a taste of this expression was overwhelming. In other words, MINDFORNICATING! Chamomile on the nose with a touch of honey and pears. The palate is creamy and mouth-coating, with brown sugar, vanilla, wood spices, and what I imagine everthing Jesus, Confucius and the Buddha were trying to teach us about encountering the divine and perfect. A revelation! (Now go and sin no more with cheap liquor.)

    Wonderful, searching for it now. I have the Balblair 1983 1st release, magical. Sadly there is very little left :(

    I don’t know, man. Sounds kinda “Meh” to me. Cheers.
