Tasting notes

Colour: The 1983 Vintage is a classic beauty. A soft copper glow and a syrupy texture.

Nose: Full of ripe tropical fruits. Banana, mango and pineapple caramelized with vanilla sugar. There’s also a hint of toasted oak, raisins and a subtle floral perfume.

Taste: An explosion of creamy tropical fruits and butterscotch or fudge. A full cream fusion with cloves, honey and cinnamon. Masala Chai tea in short. Water acts as a catalyst for the spices and balances the whisky with a soft oak bitterness.

Finish: Extremely long and creamy. Again this delicious butterscotch or toffee and vanilla pudding.

Conclusion: Typical Balblair notes. The fruity and floral flavours are fully developed.
