Matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks and Spanish oak ex-sherry butts Balblair Vintage 1991 3rd release is truly exceptional. This luxurious expression is the perfect after-dinner treat
Balblair 1991 3rd Release replaces the award winning 1990 2nd release. The 1991 3rd release is presented in a premium opening box, joining the complete Balblair collection available in this luxury format.
Bright amber in colour with rose gold highlights.
The nose is expansive and complex with rich citrus fruits and vanilla notes, toffee and chocolate. The American oak ex-bourbon barrels and Spanish oak butts used in the maturation impart notes of honey, winter spices and apricot with just a hint of liquorice in the background.
On the palate Balblair’s signature style of citrus orchard is followed with rich creamy chocolate and layers of stewed apples and pears, Christmas pudding and hot vanilla sauce.
The finish descends slowly into brighter tonality, sparkling orange and toasted coconut overtones, accentuating full-bodied sweetness of vanilla and caramel. A rich and celebratory dram.
