Balblair Vintage 1989 2nd release was introduced in 2010. A full-bodied malt with aromas of raisin, green apple and hints of banana and lemon. Why not create a flavour wheel and map the flavour characteristics of your favourite Balblair Vintages?
Balblair 1989 is mid-amber in appearance with honey-gold highlights.
The American oak barrels, used in the distillate's maturation, lend a warm toffee, vanilla fragrance.
On the palate, there are raisins and fruits with a rich spiciness.
Long, complex and smooth finish.
Our Vintages are intriguingly complex and satisfying. We capture the intense esters at the start of the spirit cut to give our Vintages the core characteristics of apricots, oranges, spices, floral notes and green apples. The heavier oils and lipids at the end of the cut are also captured, giving leathery, nutty and full-bodied characteristics.
