The rather short and almost trivial finish spoils for me what could have been a very fine and delicate single malt. – Rating: 83/100

Extremely light in character, subdued but pleasant flavours, this is one for lovers of gentle drams. – Rating: 77/100

This is quite a bit drier than the 2000 vintage but it has lost nothing of its fruitiness. It also gained some complexity. – Rating: 85/100

A very pleasant light-bodied malt that does not brag with its qualities but delivers nonetheless. – Rating: 84/100

Balblair Vintage 1991/2009

Rather gentle and unobstrusive, some people call this type a summer whisky which I think is a bit of a euphemism. There are some splendid malts of this type around, mind you. But this is not one of them. – Score: 78/100
