Balblair 1986 (cask 12648) (G&M 24yo)


Bottling: Gordon & MacPhail
Age: 24
Distilled: 1986
Bottled: 2010
Strength: 50%
Cask: Refill Sherry Hogshead

Mint Chocolate, Honey, Fruit Cake. Tobacco, and boot polish.

Mint Chocolate. Sherry. Jersey Cream.

Medium Finish. Mint Chocolate yet again. Dairy Fudge and a little Ginger as well.

One of the few sherried malts which does not offend my nose with sulphur notes. Not too complex a profile with the flavours being quite distinct. Very easy drinking with the 50% ABV but could do with being a bit stronger on the palate for me.
