Bottling: Distillery Only Exclusive
Cask: ex-bourbon (2nd fill I think)
The usual balblair mango coming through for me, but it would be interesting to know if I would get mango on a blind taste. Some sharp fruit like freshly cut red apple but easing off to soft dairy fudge ice cream, loaded with vanilla, honey and a little soft almond.
Coats the mouth easily and is hot and fizzy due to the high alcohol strength but it is a plus to me and really smacks the flavours into you and requires restraint to slowly work through the dram. Eases off in the mouth with fruit, coconut, vanilla and milk chocolate.
Not much fruit on the finish. More toasted oak, malted biscuits, and dry desicated coconut.
Fantastic dram. Again Balblair at cask strength is just utterly delicious.
