Tasting Notes

Appearance

The first release of Balblair 1983 has a rich golden appearance.

Aroma

On the nose there are warm aromas of butterscotch, toffee and vanilla that come from the long years of maturation in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. Citrus fruits can also be detected in the aroma adding to the complexity of this exceptional Vintage.

Taste

On the palate it is sweet and spicy; with overtones of fresh fruits and honey.

Finish

A long, warming and full bodied 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.
