Balblair Islay Cask Bottling Note

This delicious 1990 vintage is a Balblair with a difference. In fact, it sees the usually spicy, malty whisky imbued with a gloriously peaty flavour. Rather than add the peat in the traditional way (by distilling the spirit from peated malt), the distillers took the unusual step of ageing the whisky in an American oak barrel which previously held a maturing Islay malt. This is something Balvenie has had good success with in the past, and this cracking cask-strength dram is also rather wonderful.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sweet smoke and allspice, with hints of toffee apples, sticking plasters and orange marmalade. A little manuka honey.

Palate: Malt loaf and oily wood smoke, with a core of spices, citrus rind and vanilla. It develops with bonfire toffee and cracked black pepper.

Finish: A long, peppery finish with lingering vanilla custard, and hints of lapsang souchong.

Overall: A wonderfully smoky take on the classic Balblair.
