Released around a decade ago, this 1979 vintage Balblair is a forerunner of the hugely successful 1979 vintage released in the distillery's updated livery in 2007. It seems that this vintage has always been held in high regard by the distillery's owners, and with good reason.
A Rare Old bottling of whisky from Glenlochy, released by Gordon & Macphail. The distillery closed back in 1983 and has since been demolished, but fortunately G&M have an archive of lost distilleries in their warehouses that they occasionaly dip into for whiskies such as this - a 1979 vintage.
