This second release of the 1975 Vintage of Balblair Highland single malt is a very different style from the original ‘75 which was aged in Spanish oak ex-sherry casks, while this second release was aged in American oak ex-sherry casks. Non-chill-filtered and bottled without caramel colouring.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 21/07/2012

Appearance

Clear, mid golden yellow. (Clouds with water.)

Aroma

Soft, mellifluous vanilla custard, chamois leather and crème anglaise with toast and cracked black pepper.

Taste

Initially sweet, surprisingly spicy after such a meek vanilla nose but beyond the thin ranks of ninja cinnamon spice you’ll find vanilla, fudge and coconut with light zesty citrus.

Aftertaste

Creamy vanilla (think ice-creamy) and light peppery spice.
