Balblair Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky Vintage 2000 (10 Year)
First Look: "Ultra light gold color and very Chardonnay-like..."
Nose: "...Fruit, citrus, honey, vanilla, soft cocoa, pineapple, with malt and banana fighting to be noticed..."
Palate: "...Soft elegant fruit, spicy malt, a touch of sweet honey, vanilla, apricot, candied banana and a touch of white pepper."
Finish: "The finish is round, soft, and surprisingly long with a vanilla lingering."
Fair Trade: $45
Verdict: At $55, this soft, elegant dram is delicious, but I’d like to see how it shows if and when Balblair releases a second edition. As good as this breakfast Whisky is, I’ll pass on a second bottle for now. Don't get me wrong. This is one delicious Whisky, just a little light considering the age.
