7:14:32 pm cowfish: @TheWhiskyWire A pinky orange chewiit? #Balblair
7:14:33 pm twhisky: That "metallic/copper" thing others are getting from the 2000 is the feijoa I'm tasting, I suspect... #balblair
7:14:35 pm whiskyintel: The sweet malt begins to grow after a while, there is a lot of good things happening :) #balblair #scotch
7:14:43 pm russmacdonald: #balblair 2000 palate turns all that fruitiness in the nose to spicy and Ginger with a huge finish that has a hint of dark chocolate.

7:16:11 pm saint_jimmy: Why can't this last forever? #balblair #twasting
7:16:12 pm THEWHISKYWIRE: A little shy in coming forward but once its woken up in the glass after 10 minutes it's one extraverted and even slutty dram. #Balblair 2000
7:16:18 pm whiskyforum: good after taste ... salty finish indeed #Balblair
7:16:31 pm inwithbacchus: @DandyT Think pine pitch. A dark, deep smoke-like taste to me, at least. #balblair
7:16:32 pm JayDieNL: What a fruity dram #balblair
7:16:43 pm galg: yes. palate is definetly spicy. ginger, pepper? #balblair but the fruity stuff is also there. lovely
7:17:02 pm DandyT: I see a lot of choclate coming by but I'm not getting that (maybe it's the great rib eye I had earlier ;-) #balblair
7:17:04 pm inwithbacchus: @EdinburghWhisky Wait, 30 quid for a bottle? Sold. #balblair
7:17:06 pm WhiskyWall: The crisp fruit quickly becomes embroiled in a melange of darkening grains and dense, slightly caramalized sugars. What done, #balblair.
7:17:08 pm EdinburghWhisky: Lots and lots of it, just keeps coming. Definitely benefits from a few minutes in the glass #balblair
7:17:24 pm twhisky: Balblair 2000 finish: light, long, a touch of menthol, hint of acid drops... #balblair
7:17:27 pm russmacdonald: RT @THEWHISKYWIRE: A little shy in coming forward but once its woken up in the glass after 10 minutes it's one extraverted and even slutty dram. #Balblair 2000
7:17:28 pm aberdeenwhisky: RT @THEWHISKYWIRE: A little shy in coming forward but once its woken up in the glass after 10 minutes it's one extraverted and even slutty dram. #Balblair 2000
7:17:36 pm TheScotsdreamer: On the taste smooth, tangy with a long finish. Can taste crab apples from the neighbors garden, pear drops, green chili g & honey #balblair
7:17:40 pm galg: @WhiskyEmporium u need water with this at 43%??? !!!! #balblair
7:18:05 pm inwithbacchus: I find it fascinating. On the forefront, it's super rich fruits. But the background/finish is smoke, vanilla, and strong oak. #balblair '00
7:18:09 pm cowfish: @galg It's not a case of need, more a case of seeing how water affects it. #balblair
7:18:10 pm aberdeenwhisky: @inwithbacchus hola! hope you are enjoying #balblair - how is the brewing going?!
7:18:12 pm maltjerry: Pepper spice on undiluted 2000, is much softened with a few drops. #balblair Having brought Gentle Giant up, I'm going Classic Rock on you
7:18:19 pm TheScotsdreamer: Little bit of eastern spices an broccoli. All this without water #balblair
7:18:22 pm OliverKlimek: #balblair 2000 summary: A very pleasant light-bodied malt that does not brag with its qualities but delivers nonetheless.
7:18:24 pm JayDieNL: #balblair palate: Soft, fruity (yello fruits again) some bitterness
7:18:31 pm maltwhiskybar: I mean strong as in powerful, but not over-powering #balblair
7:18:44 pm whisky4everyone: Sad to not be tasting @balblairwhisky with you all, as we both travelling home after late finishes at work. Enjoy everyone - K&M #balblair
7:18:47 pm galg: Fruity stuff no doubt, the pepper adds a nice edge to it. lingering on the finish. quite a nice trick! - 2000 was a good year ;) #balblair
7:18:55 pm EdinburghWhisky: RT @THEWHISKYWIRE: A little shy in coming forward but once its woken up it's one extraverted and even slutty dram. #Balblair 2000
7:19:03 pm twhisky: Just added a splash of water to the 2000: brings a bit of the cocoa out more on the nose... but otherwise largely unchanged #balblair
7:19:05 pm DandyT: It's a vintage. Does that mean a blend of several years? #balblair
7:19:15 pm saint_jimmy: With water: the vintage 2000 seems to get more pepper, dried apricots, plums and a little burned creme brulee #balblair
7:19:17 pm inwithbacchus: @aberdeenwhisky Fabulous. Bottled our school brew Monday and our homebrew this Saturday. #balblair
7:19:20 pm russmacdonald: #balblair 2000 second tasting with a little water brings out a completely different character that's worth a taste
7:19:30 pm procface: Touch of water has opened it up #balblair 2000
7:19:41 pm galg: @cowfish i am very strict with water. 90% of the time i prefer the non- aqua dram to the watered down dram #balblair
7:19:55 pm EdinburghWhisky: #balblair 2000 summary: stunning.
7:20:14 pm TheScotsdreamer: Renosing pure smells like a freshly bakes Victoria sponge #balblair
7:20:18 pm EdinburghWhisky: #balblair 2000 is probably my fav release of the year.
7:20:21 pm cowfish: #balblair 2000 water seems to knock a lot of the sweetness out of it. Custard at the back, more wood, hint of menthol on the finish.
7:20:25 pm aberdeenwhisky: anyone getting pencil shavings?! #balblair
7:20:28 pm Balblairwhisky: OK folks - I think we'll move on to the wonderful 1989. If somebody says they don't like this I WILL hunt you down. #balblair

7:21:31 pm twhisky: Palate softens considerably with water. Be very easy to overdo it. A little pineapple comes through. Less acidic than feijoa. #balblair

7:39:10 pm WhiskyEmporium: #Balblair 1989 with 3 drops water: Think liquorice allsorts (new flavour) of liquorice centre with black cherry and banana outer.

7:45:55 pm inwithbacchus: Don't want the #balblair '89 to end but I cant stop drinking it. The worst kind of conundrum.
7:45:57 pm saint_jimmy: Comparing the 2000 to the 1989, the 2000 is like Halle Berry: fruity, tropical and a great way to celebrate christmas with family #balblair
7:45:59 pm THEWHISKYWIRE: @BalblairWhisky Two superb dram that deliver with balance, depth and finish. I look forward to exploring what else #Balblair has to offer.
7:46:00 pm TheScotsdreamer: 89body finish. Very long lasting like sucking a kiwi fruit skin after eating a Clementine. Tingles and citrus. Mouth wants to chew #balblair
7:46:05 pm whiskyintel: The dryness of the finish is very appealling& after a while the fruit makes another appearance #balblair #scotch

7:46:25 pm maltwhiskybar: #balblair The 89 is like the Pulteney 17. It rolls and rolls around the mouth with a finish you just can't get rid of. Not that you want to!
7:46:34 pm galg: @procface well, that;s what i normally do. but they dont ship here to israel... ! we have 200% tax on whisky. damned country. #balblair

7:47:02 pm aberdeenwhisky: @galg @russmacdonald right im going with my gut feeling and not adding any! #balblair
7:47:05 pm whiskyintel: Just taking a moment to enjoy the 89 #balblair #scotch
7:47:06 pm saint_jimmy: The 1989 is more like Jody Foster: older, more complex, a wee dry on the face and an even better way to make your dad jealous #balblair
7:47:12 pm whiskyforum: empty glass developing into straw and muesli ..... #Balblair ... not an empty bottle though !!

7:48:49 pm Balblairwhisky: can't keep up with you guys! brilliant to read #balblair
7:49:08 pm procface: 89 #balblair has flowed very well without water. Thanks for the advice not to pollute it.
7:49:08 pm cowfish: @sjoerd972 Sawdust maybe? Not a lot and not in a bad way, but a little bit. Pencil shavings? #balblair
7:49:13 pm maltjerry: I'm going to pour a splash of 1989 so I can compare undiluted #balblair

7:49:51 pm TheScotsdreamer: The 89 would go well with a venison and plum sauce followed with the 2000 for a hot rhubarb crumble and crushed meringue ice cream #balblair
7:49:51 pm procface: @saint_jimmy Jody Foster? So the 2000 #balblair is...?

7:51:57 pm jgr141: Loving reading all these tasting notes, must go and have an 89. also good to read all the positive comments, #balblair
7:51:58 pm whiskyintel: Both were very good but different; the 00 the start of the evening & the 89 at the end of the evening #balblair or in this case lunch!
7:52:02 pm aberdeenwhisky: has anyone tried the '65 #balblair from ex-Ardbeg casks!? I love the sound of that : )
7:52:14 pm galg: @Balblairwhisky i think the 1989 is more complex, but it depends on the mood and time of year. summer i think 2000. fall - 1989 #balblair

7:53:17 pm THEWHISKYWIRE: Tooooo close to call but if I had to select one it would be the 89 #Balblair
7:53:25 pm cowfish: @Balblairwhisky I think that'd change. At the moment I quite like the 89, but I suspect I'd like the 2000 more when it's warmer. #balblair

7:54:31 pm jonmbryant: @Balblairwhisky maybe controversial but I'm tempted to run with the 2000 #Balblair

7:54:40 pm TheScotsdreamer: @balblairwhisky I genuinely prefer the lightness of the 2000 though would opt for the 89 if I was hosting a tasting with friends #balblair
