Quick Dram: Balblair 1990 2nd edition

BB90 Bot Beauty_1This Beauty spent time in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry (Oloroso) casks, and is  replacing the 1989 vintage (which was a cracker) It’s the 3rd “newish” expressions to be released a few moths back with the 2003 and 1983 editions.

Balblair 1990 – 2nd Release , 46.0% , £92BB 90 Pack Shot (1)

Nose: Vanilla citrus and crystallized ginger. Fresh cut grass and a hint of spiced wood and orchard fruit. Creamy and lively with the slightest hint of varnish.

Palate: Sweet concentrated and creamy. Peppery yet fruity. Wood, fruit, malt and the teensiest hint of smoke. Delicious.

Finish : Fruit and malt. Drying.

Another very good dram from the guys over at Balblair. House style with an addition of complexity from the bourbon+sherry combo. A keeper.

Score: 88/100
