Distribution of ratings for this:
Color: The 1983 is a classic beauty. A soft copper glow and a syrupy texture.
Nose: Full of ripe tropical fruits. Banana, mango and pineapple caramelized with vanilla sugar. There’s also a hint of toasted oak, raisins and a subtle flower perfume.
Taste: An explosion of creamy tropical fruits and butterscotch or fudge. A full cream fusion with cloves, honey and cinnamon. Masala Chai tea in short.
Water acts as a catalyst for the spices and balances the whisky with a soft oaky bitterness. Finish: Extremely long and creamy. Again this delicious butterscotch or toffee and vanilla pudding.
Conclusion: Typical Balblair notes. The fruity and floral flavours are fully developed. Got a British connection? Let him order it on the Balblair site, hand him £ 200 and be eternally grateful to him.
