Ok people, the team at The Whisky Exchange have been peppering us with some great single casks over the past year or so, and now they’re back with an exclusive single cask bottling from Balblair distillery. Will this new release be in keeping with their recent high standards, or will it prove to be a proverbial “fly in the ointment”? Lets have a look…

Soft finish, medium length with grapefruit and the welcome reminder of Lemon Sorbet.

Overview

Good, well balanced whisky folks. Delicate as a flower in a summer breeze and enough body to leave you relaxed in the shade.

You can’t say fairer than that!

As ever, loungers. You have the power to prove me wrong. Feel free to do just that!

See you soon!

Connas.
