A superbly well-balanced malt with warm spicy aromas, Balblair Vintage 1975 was introduced as the replacement for 1979 in January 2008. Why not create a flavour wheel and map the flavour characteristics of your favourite Balblair Vintages?
Balblair 1975 is deep amber in appearance, with bright copper highlights.
Slight traces of honey and green apples can be detected, adding to the complexity of this exceptional Vintage.
On the palate, it’s rich and creamy to start, with traces of chocolate.
A long, lingering 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.
