The 2005 vintage of Balblair comes as the next instalment. This really is a full, fruity, spicey and sweet example of the Highland dram. The nose is refreshing and malty with an awful lot of tangy citrus zest and lemon. Suggestions of honey, thyme, rinds, blackberries and oak. The palate is spicy and huge, plenty of sweetness, lemon, tangerine rind, acacia honey and pepper. On the finish, cocoa, cinnamon and malt.
