As the world began its ten-year saunter towards the new Millennium, Balblair distilled this expression of their excellent single malt in 1990 and set it aside to mature in ex-bourbon casks. 21 years later, they moved the whisky over to Oloroso sherry butts for the last two years of maturation before they bottled the single malt for this delicious release.
Nose: Lush toffee, milk chocolate and a good helping of vanilla. A sprinkle of spice round out the nose.
Palate: Citrus fruits come through first, followed by honey-covered raisins. The spice from the nose makes an appearance.
Finish: Lengthy and full-flavoured.
Overall: Good amounts of sweet fruits and soft spices, a brilliant full-bodied expression.

All about rich balance. The bourbon is still very eveident, just more lush with fruit and spice. Absolutely sublime.

I think Balblair is the undiscovered gem of the whisky world. Hence the prices of their older releases represent such great value. The balance in general for their whisky is just superb. For this 1990 2nd release you get to swim and float in a pool of citrus, candy, spice and chocolate. Whisky heaven.

Add some water (a couple of small portions), let it breathe and you should have your self diffirent kinds of whiskies in the same glas that developes throughout the whole night. The nose gets amazing in the end with tones of sauna, lemongrass, coffe and sweet milkchocolate.
