Balblair 1997 2nd Release Bottling Note

This is the second release of a 1997 vintage from the Highland distillery of Balblair. Balblair bucked convention a few years back by replacing age-statement with vintages like those of wine bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Crisp, herbal, berries and barley, nutty vanilla.

Palate: Sweet, a little earthen quality with a fruity robustness. More vanilla, but now creamier, and gently infused with the oak.

Finish: Silken with warm pastries.

    Oh My

    A fine drink indeed. Given to me as a gift during deer hunting camp it was a hit with those in attendance. A wonderful Scotch that has a finish unsurpasssed by any other. A must have.

    Just had a bottle of this and it has been a very pleasant surprise. 1997 has more sweetness and it is more sophisticated than your regular Highland Whisky, but it still has those warming, strong characteristics, typical to region. Interesting one!

    Anyone tasted this?

    I loved the 1989 but cannot justify the price of another at the moment. Anyone out there tried this at all - opinion?
