The 3rd edition of the Balblair 1991 Vintage, released before the distillery moved away from vintages to age statements. Matured for 27 years in American oak ex-bourbon casks and finished for 3 years in first-fill Spanish oak, ex-sherry butts and bottled in 2018. Naturally coloured and bottled at 46%.
Nose: Expansive and complex with rich citrus fruits and vanilla notes, toffee and chocolate. Honey, winter spices and apricot with just a hint of liquorice in the background.
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.
Finish: Orange and toasted coconut overtones, accentuating full-bodied sweetness of vanilla and caramel.
