We had another busy week at BevX with new, tasty beverage reviews to share. This week we have two new spirits reviews and three new wine reviews. Enjoy!

The BevX reviews are like no other. We evaluate wines, beers, and spirits breaking down elements of appearance, aroma, flavor, texture and intensity as well the product’s “cool factor” and value. We also offer analysis on the creation of the beverage as well as any interesting points that make it unique. Finally we offer suggestion on how to enjoy the beverage including pairing and cocktail suggestions.

As always you see all of our reviews here:

Spirits
Balblair (second release) Vintage 1999 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Brilliant, copper color. The nose is amazingly complex with layers of aromatics revealed with each passing. Scents of baked apples and pears mingle in equal measure with rich oak and brown baking spices with hints of honey, leather, and citrus. The palate echoes the nose delivering a round and lush fruit and oak core enveloped with honey and spice. The flavors build and build until lingering for minutes after swallowing with accents of pepper and honey. Full-bodied with a rich, silky palate that while generous with fruit and oak never seems heavy as it’s ideally balanced with bright, clean acidity and spice notes.

Balblair Vintage 2005 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Brilliant, pale golden color. The aromatics are wonderfully fruity and seductive with scents of apple, peach, and honey with waves of spring flowers, nutmeg, orange zest, and vanilla. The palate is in full accord with the nose delivering a beautifully complex fruit-driven core with flanking notes of honey, flowers, baking spices, oak, roasted nuts, and vanilla bean. Medium to full-bodied with rich fruit and spice kept quite sprite via bright acidity and spice accents.

Wine
Santa Julia Tintillo – Malbec/Bonarda Mendoza 2016
Bright, deep violet/purple color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of red cherry, strawberry, and boysenberry with supporting notes of pomegranate and raspberry. The palate confirms the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of raspberry and crushed red berries. The finish is long and lingering with silky, supple tannins. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced with a opulent texture being pleasingly juicy.
