A windy crisp day in Southeast PA meant that none of my end of the season outside projects got done today. No way I was going up on the roof in 30mph winds. Instead, I did some work inside my wifes studio which needed some repairs on a ceiling crack. That didn't take too long so I poured a glass of Balblair and watched some of the Patriot-Broncos game.
This Balblair is number 2542 of 3150 bottles and is a light honey gold color in the bottle and the glass. The nose is a bit spicey with a little vanilla and citrus. First tasting is sweet and acidic the way grapefruit juice is. That is not to say that this tastes anything like grapefruit juice. There are classic tastes of toffee and oak mixed in with the citrus. Quite unlike the vast majority of malts. The finish keeps the citrus feel for quite some time when toffee comes out near the end.
Overall a unique single malt experience that may not be for everyone but one that I'm glad I've had the chance to try.
