Tasting Notes

Appearance:

The first release of Balblair 1999 is copper bronze in appearance.

Aroma:

On the nose there are the signature Balblair aromas: floral and fragrant punctuated with green apples, citrus fruits and vanilla. The American oak, ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish oak, ex-sherry butts used in maturation impart a rich spiciness and notes of leather, honey and chocolate.

Palate:

On the palate honey and vanilla notes combine with a rich spiciness and sweet toffee, resulting in a full bodied Vintage.

Finish:

The long lasting, smooth finish is sweet yet spicy.

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.
