I’ve had very few whiskies from the Balblair distillery. And personally I think I’m missing out.
So before we get into the whisky, I need to ask myself: Why is that? Well probably due to my own biases.
I love Islays and Lowlands. A lot. They are tasty as heck to me. And I tend to not enjoy Highland Whisky that much. Or put much stock in Whisky books or awards.
And then comes along Balblair 1989. A whisky that has won many an award, and was even in both of the whisky books I’m working through.
It’s NAS, with a year to tell us which Vintage it is. So half NAS, I guess. Or maybe I’m missing when it was released and therefore I don’t know the age. Please correct me, and since this is the internet, call me a jackass and do it in a negative tone.
