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.
About the Winery
Since we rolled out our first barrels in 1790, we've been producing award-winning Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky. At Balblair we only ever release our whisky when it's ready.
