Balblair Vintage 2000 – 2nd Release

ABV: 46 %
Origin: Highland
Type: Single Malt
Bottles in collection: 0
Emptied bottles: 0
Impression: 4/5

Tasting notes
This was tasted at a whisky festival. No tasting notes were recorded. The impression was that this is a sweet and fruity whisky with a mix of malt and darker fruits as the main feature. It’s very subdued on the nose but very rich in texture and taste with leather, dust and floral notes floating around.

Additional information
This whisky was distilled in 2000 and bottled in 2017. It’s aged in ex-bourbon casks and finished in ex-sherry butts. It’s unchillfiltered and has natural colour.
