The third release of Balblair's 1991 vintage is 27 year old, this time bottled in 2018. Matured in ex-bourbon casks for 24 years, before being transferred to ex-sherry butts for a further three, this combines Balblair's typical citrus and orchard fruit notes with rich chocolate, dried fruit and honey.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes from the producer
The nose is expansive and complex with rich citrus fruits and vanilla notes, toffee and chocolate. The American oak ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish oak butts used in the maturation impart notes of honey, winter spices and apricot with just a hint of liquorice in the background.
On the palate Balblair's signature style of citrus orchard is followed with rich creamy chocolate and layers of stewed apples and pears, Christmas pudding and hot vanilla sauce.
The finish descends slowly into brighter tonality, sparkling orange and toasted coconut overtones, accentuating full-bodied sweetness of vanilla and caramel. A rich and celebratory dram.

Stopped at the distillery late one afternoon and the folks could not have been more accommodating to visitors from US. Sampled a few different offerings and purchased a bottle of 1991. That was a year ago and now I am willing to have shipped from Scotland because it is not imported to US. It is fantastic, so much so that my wife steals a dram or two once in a while.
Well, I started thinking this was unusually light for a Balblair but let me tell you, it'a a definite grower. Light, sophisticated whisky with oaky vanilla notes. For it's age and quality it is not that expensive! Delicious.
Velvety, smooth notes of vanilla, nutmeg, orange.
One of the best single malts I had in my life. I highly recommend.
