Scotch whisky brand Balblair has released a 1999 vintage as part of its core range

Set to hit shelves in specialist retailers across the globe at the end of June, Balblair 1999 is the fourth whisky to be introduced to the brand’s permanent range.

Hand-selected by Balblair distillery manager, John MacDonald, the 1999 vintage is aged in Bourbon barrels and Sherry butts.

It is described as having “rich” notes of spice, citrus and vanilla on the nose, with “full bodied” honey and leather flavours on the palate.

Gillian Gibson, Balblair global brand manager, said: “We are excited to be launching the second release of the 1999 Vintage. We are now able to offer consumers a core range of four Balblair expressions all in premium opening packaging.

“With hints of refreshing green apple on the tongue, Balblair 1999 is the perfect whisky to enjoy over the summer months”.

Balblair 1999 initially launched as a travel retail exclusive in March this year. It will now soon be available internationally from specialist retailers at an RRP of £60.
