Balblair 2003 is golden amber in appearance.
On the nose there are the signature Balblair aromas: floral and fragrant punctuated with citrus fruits, apricots and honey.
On the palate it is full bodied, with notes of oranges, lemon, honey and spice.
The long lasting finish is sweet yet spicy; a superbly well-balanced dram.
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.
