The second release of Balblair 1990 is deep copper in appearance with hints of sparkling amber.
The aroma is spicy yet sweet and is punctuated with notes of raisins, toffee and honey. Hints of vanilla, chocolate and citrus fruits are also present.
On the palate it is full bodied; sweet and spicy in character with hints of honey, raisins and zesty fruits.
The finish is smooth and long-lasting.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points - A jumble of baking spices crackle in the glass against a backdrop of weighty oak. A sip unleashes the spices, which become more highly articulated-cinnamon, clove, cardamom. Walnut, too. Wood and hot cinnamon win out in the peppery finish. (Apr 2016)
