Review: Balblair 1991 VintageJune 24th, 2010
This is a continuation from my review of the 1997 vintage recently. Both were just released to the U.S.
Balblair, 1991 Vintage, 43%, $130
Here’s the older sibling to the 1997 vintage released in U.S. at the same time. It costs twice as much as the 1997 vintage, and guess what? I like the less expensive, 1997 vintage better (because of its lovely balance and creamy texture). Still, this 1991 vintage is a nice whisky, rich with vanilla, coconut cream, citrus (orange, tangerine), pineapple, and sultana. A soothing, mouth-coating texture lingers, with some polished oak on the finish.
