Tasting Notes


Balblair 1999 2nd release is copper in appearance with flecks of sparkling bronze.


The American oak, ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish oak, ex-sherry butts used for maturation impart the signature Balblair aromas of honey and green apples, as well as notes of rich, fruity Christmas cake with a hint of spice, citrus fruits and vanilla.


On the palate, it is full bodied, sweet and spicy in character, with hints of honey, vanilla and leather. 


The finish is warm, smooth 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.
