The second release of Balblair 1990 is deep copper in appearance with hints of sparkling amber.
The aroma is spicy yet sweet and is punctuated with notes of raisins, toffee and honey. Hints of vanilla, chocolate and citrus fruits are also present.
On the palate it is full bodied; sweet and spicy in character with hints of honey, raisins and zesty fruits.
The finish is smooth and long-lasting.
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.
