Review by Balblair

Colour

Balblair 1999 2nd release is copper in appearance with flecks of sparkling bronze.

Nose

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.

Note

Summer 2014 sees the launch of the second release of the 1999 Vintage from Balblair Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Set to hit shelves at the end of June, Balblair Vintage 1999 will be available globally in Independent and Specialist Retailers.

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 will be presented in a premium opening box, joining the complete Balblair collection available in this luxury format.
