    Other reviews... A charmer. Don't even think about touching this until it has stood in the glass for ten minutes. 94.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2020

    ...This veteran Balblair was distilled on February 7, 1969 using barley malted on site and coal-fired stills. Opens with slight saltiness on the nose, almost ozone, then lemons and pine, and finally, vanilla fudge. Overt citrus notes on the palate, with aniseed, some oak, brittle toffee, and a smokiness not found in younger Balblairs. The finish is long and discreetly spicy, notably cinnamon and black pepper. 41.4% Alc./Vol. 89 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Summer 2013)
