Balblair 1989 Third Release Bottling Note

This is the third release of Balblair 1989, a great malt which was matured in ex-bourbon barrels.
As with the 2001 vintage, launched in November 2011, this expression is non-chill-filtered, and bottled at 46% abv.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Vanilla and spicy oak abound with some intriguing spice and citrus notes.

Palate: Soft and sweet, yet full and voluptuous towards the middle. There are cereal notes here and more vanilla oak.

Finish: Good length, with a creamy quality beneath the sweet, bourbon oak.

Overall: A lovely smooth dram that remains interesting and rich despite its sweetness.

    Pale, light, but deeply lovely

    Very interesting and supremely tasty Scotch - a rare and beautiful find, and very reasonably priced (I paid around £100). There's a light fruit, hint of smoke on the finish, and a sort of shortbread biscuit taste - very pleasant indeed. Worth looking for and definitely recommended

    For me, this was an exertion into expensive malt (for my purse anyway!). Absolutely love it - the MoM tasting notes are quite accurate although I found honeyed tones in the palate. I will be buying another when I can afford it. One word of warning, only add spring water (if water is your thing) or ice cubes made from such water. I added a tapwater ice cube and this whisky really brought out the chlorine.

    As always in my opinion!
