Balblair – Vintage 1990 – Highland, Single Malt – Scotch Whisky

The nose is powerful, concentrated and offers a nice richness, depthness and complexity. It reveals notes of Zante currants, dried apricots and hints of dried orange zest associated with fine touches of cedar wood, subtle hints of spice, caramelization as well as a subtle toasted hint and an imperceptible hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful suavity, a fine unctuosity / creaminess, a beautiful delicacy / finesse, a nice complexity as well as a small aerial aspect. On the palate, this Scotch Whisky expresses notes of Zante currants, candied lemon and dried mandarin zest combined with a subtle hint of prune, dried cherry, a touch of nougatine / pâtisseries as well as a discreet touch of cedar wood, cocoa / wood and a very discreet touch of toasted oak. Great persistence. A beautiful Scotch !
