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.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Balblair has one of the oldest set of records in Whisky history. The entry is dated January 25, 1800, and is written by John Ross himself. It reads: "Sale to David Kirkcaldy at Ardmore, one gallon of whisky at £1.8.0d." Cool, right?
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
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, though).
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
The cherished water source is the Ault Dearg Burn (burn means stream).
