Complex and charismatic, the second release of Vintage 2000 epitomises Balblair’s signature elegant style.
The aroma is led by honey sweetness and a rich, fruity heart of raisins and baked caramel apples. Dark chocolate and crème brulee follow with just a touch of elusive winter spices underneath. Sweet and full-bodied on the palate, the taste evokes seasoned fruit cake and sticky toffee, balanced by brighter notes of fresh vanilla and a subtle thread of lime honey. A warm, lingering finish delivers the final spicy flourish to this finessed Single Malt.
