1990 Balblair 19 Year Old, A.D. Rattray, Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Delicious whisky from one of the Spey's lesser known distilleries, this expression is bottled at cask strength and has a tremendous nose that leans towards the earthier aromas with hints of honey. The palate starts with a touch of sherry wood sweetness then the power of the undiluted malt comes through on the mid. The flavors are intense, almost like a cask strength bourbon, but the finish is loaded with dried fruit and spice. This is the March of single malts - in like a lion, out like a lamb. Very, very tasty.
