Tasting Notes

Appearance

The first release of sherry matured Balblair 2004 is bronzed amber in appearance.

Aroma

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. 

Palate

On the palate hints of raisins and spice combine with the sweetness of vanilla, coconut and honey.  

Finish

The finish is smooth, warm and long-lasting.

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.
