Balblair Vintage 2004 sherry matured was launched exclusively in travel retail in 2014. The liquid used to create this fine Vintage has been wholly matured in American and Spanish oak, ex-sherry butts which have imparted a rich spicy note and vanilla fragrance. Let us know what you think of our travel retail Vintages by Tweeting, @Balblairwhisky.
The first release of sherry matured Balblair 2004 is bronzed amber in appearance.
This full bodied Vintage is fused with aromas of raisins, leather and spice. Hints of green apple, citrus fruits and dark chocolate can also be detected.
On the palate hints of raisins and spice combine with the sweetness of vanilla, coconut and honey.
The finish is smooth, warm 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.
