Nose: There is loads of fruit up front: Golden apples, grapefruit and pineapple notes emerge first, wrapped in honey aromas. Over time the fruits turn tropical - mango and banana - with vanilla and biscuity aromas.

Palate: A light mouthfeel, but the flavours are quite intense. Melon, mango and bananas first with hints of sweet spices. The barley flavours are noticeable.

Finish: Finishes clean and fresh, with more of the spice and vanilla, and maybe a touch of floral character at the death.

Comments: I first tried this at Whisky Live Paris, which probably didn't do it justice as it was lost on my palate. I can appreciate it much more in isolation. The older Balblair bottlings have more to offer, but I'd happily enjoy a dram on a summer afternoon.
