Tasting Notes


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.

Core Characteristics

Core Characteristics

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.
