With influence from both American and Spanish oak, this perfectly rounded vintage is a true testimony to the craft of traditional whisky-making. Balblair 1999 replaces the award-winning second release of the 1997 Vintage; the introduction of the 1997 Vintage took the core collection from three to four expressions. The 1999 Vintage is presented in a premium opening box, joining the complete Balblair collection available in this luxury format.
Aroma: The American oak, ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish oak, ex-sherry butts used for maturation impart the signature Balblair aromas of honey and green apples, as well as notes of rich, fruity Christmas cake with a hint of spice, citrus fruits and vanilla. Palate: On the palate, it is full bodied, sweet and spicy in character, with hints of honey, vanilla and leather. Finish: The finish is warm, smooth and long-lasting.
