Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
Vintage delight. 

Balblair is situated just to the north of Glenmorangie, near the village of Edderton in Ross-shire. It is one of the oldest Scottish distilleries, dating back to 1790, but there are records of distilleries on the site as far back as 1749. Balblair’s Whiskies are famous for releasing only vintage Highland single-malt Whiskies, once distillery manager John MacDonald decides they have reached optimum maturation.
 
This is Balblair’s second release of the much anticipated 1999 Vintage, which replaces the 1997 vintage in their portfolio. Aged for 15 years in 2nd fill Bourbon casks, and first-fill Sherry butts. While the 1st edition was available for Travel Retail only, this version is distributed more liberally. Grab on(e) and don’t let go.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).
