Balblair 38yr and 24yr

Postby lincoln imp » Thu Dec 06, 2007 5:31 pm

I have been lucky enough to purchase these two bottles of Balblair recently. I have got them to drink not collect but before i decide which one to have a go at first i wondered if any other forum members had also tried them and what your thoughts are on these two bottlings. Also has anyone tried the 26,33 and 35yr bottles from that range.
Comments appreciated. LI

I tasted the 38 year old.

Absolutely stunning. My favorite malt of all times.

What are you doing? Purchase one bottle!!! :shock:

I had an old Balblair (29) bottled by David Stirk and it was excellent. An under-rated distillery, I think.
