This second release of vintage 1999 from Balblair was bottled in the summer of 2014. The distillery located in the Northern Highlands and founded in 1790 by John Ross is one of precious few that releases its whiskies in vintages. It is non-chill filtered with no added color.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky is a lot of fun to drink - definitely parties like its vintage year suggests! Ripe apple and orange mingles with spice and caramel. Then malted chocolate shows up fashionably late and everyone mixes it up into the wee hours. You'll definitely want more sips to keep the festivities going!"
