Balblair 1997, 43%

Price: $65 Issue: Fall 2010 Reviewer: John Hansell

Very fruity (peaches in syrup, pineapple, golden apple, sultana) and satisfyingly rich in texture, with coating vanilla, marzipan, and a potpourri of dried spice (especially on the nose and finish of the palate). Great balance too. Nicely done!
