Tasting Notes from Balblair


Appearance

The third release of Balblair Vintage 1999 is polished copper in colour. 


Aroma

The aroma is intriguingly spicy with a warming layer of soaked raisins. Seasoned fruit cake and oily orange peel perfume the mid tones with elegant energy. Understated chords of green apple and creamy vanilla custard follow while a hint of leather adds darkness and weight in an impeccable balancing act.


Palate

On the palate mature chocolate and toffee sweetness forms a firm and rounded base for the complexity of dried fruits, ground exotic spices, fragrant orchard and set honey. 


Finish

Flavours cascade richly into the long and rewarding finish with gingerbread spice and autumn fruit galore.
