Balblair 1978

Aged: 12 years, bourbon matured

Colour: burnished copper

Strength: 46%

Price bracket: £120 – £140

Best for: sipping in the small hours after a hard night’s high stakes gambling

Nose: delectably soft and sweet, apples, pears, banana, going a bit tropical on us, pineapple

Taste: flares up in mouth and rolls around, all sweet fruity tropical lush fruit flavours. Taste reflects the nose.

Verdict: as delectable, refined and alluring as Sofia Loren in her prime on a bearskin rug
