Description

Distillery: Balblair

This vintage 1999 Balblair single malt scotch whisky replaces the 1997 vintage in their core range. It was matured on a combination of American ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish ex-Sherry butts from 1999 until 2014.

Tasting Notes

Nose: The Sherry oak takes hold of the nose with thick slices of warm Christmas cake and juicy raisins. Beneath you'll find apple peel and honey'd malt.
Palate: Sherry spices still at the fore, though the vanilla sweetness from the bourbon barrel shines through, as does some warm, oak-y touches.
Finish: Full and long.

Taste Test

an apparent diaspora of mixed casks at times singing together; at others happy to knock each other about. Weighty, fruity but with a sharp malt theme, too' fabulous mouth feel: lush without cloying and despite the apparent grape, more than happy for the barley to weild is full juicy might; a little tangy, perhaps, but nothing too serious. Some lovely marmalade to enrich the toast; the same colour as the cockerel which wakes me each morning... and crows as loudly. Gorgeous.

A game of two halves, with elegant and fruity Balblair backed up rich, dark and spicy notes thanks to a two year finish in sherry casks. It is unmistakably vintage Balbair that makes this scotch just so tasty. A good vintage for those who enjoy the sherry cask aroma.
