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.
Appearance – Bright amber in colour with rose gold highlights.
Aroma – 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.
Palate – 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.
Finish – 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.
