Balblair Vintage 1969
This rare Vintage single malt was matured in American oak, ex-bourbon hogshead casks.
Balblair 1969 is a rich golden colour with amber highlights
It has an aromatic and spicy aroma. Fragrant and floral with hints of lemons, apples, bananas, pear drops and toffee. On the nose there are also slight vanilla, leather and smoky notes.
On the palate the many layers of taste come through, well into the long finish. Honey sweet with hints of green apples, bananas pears and oranges. The full bodied flavour also offers a hint of smokiness, together with a suggestion of toffee and vanilla.
Balblair 1969 is a superb Vintage that displays remarkable complexity and balance. Truly the jewel in the crown.
