The second release of 1990 vintage Balblair. Long known to blenders as a category 'A' malt, Balblair is a terrific malt whisky worthy of the renewed attention its 2007 makeover and thrilling vintage releases have bestowed.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Thick caramel, dusty milk chocolate, real maraschino cherries and a touch of darker oily notes.

    Palate: Spiced, stewed apple, with ginger and cinnamon. Turkish delight covered in dark chocolate, candied lemon and dark fruit cake. Water smooths out any bumps, revealing tropical fruit and delicate citrus notes.

    Finish: Dark chocolate, bitter lemon pith, soft apples and gentle spice.

    Comment: This has spent more than a year finishing in sherry casks and you can tell. It combines the orchard fruit and gentle richness of traditional boubon-cask-matured Balblair with something a bit heavier, creating an excellent dram.
