.balblair – 1990

50,4% abv, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural color, single cask, cask strength

Nose: bees-wax, a smouldering campfire, gentle, salted butter, citrus, lime, warm apple pie and some brininess
Palate: honey sweet, like eating good fresh honeycomb, red fruits, watermelon, apple pie, ginger
Finish: dry and sweet at the same time. Long, with hints of ginger again
Score: +++++

Conclusion: Awesome. Next morning, the glass smelled of a huge chocolate fountain, with lots of dark chocolate.

More info: Matured in an American oak ex-Bourbon cask, previously used for maturing Islay whisky. Exclusively for Master of Malt, cask #1466, 1990 – 2013

Tasted in a so-called Twitter Tasting where the participants were sent three samples.
