Balblair 1989 Second Release

Country: Scotland
Region: Highlands
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 93 points

This edition uses second-fill bourbon barrels, and uses no caramel coloring or chill-filtering. The nose is complex and spicy with allspice and hazelnut, tart underneath with banana cream pie with graham cracker crust and a hint of lemon. The taste is spicy with a cinnamon blast that lingers, but doesn’t overpower the banana notes underneath. The finish is Key Lime Pie with bananas.
