Last night (Tuesday December 3), I attended a tasting of Balblair vintages. We tasted five whiskies, 2003, 1997, 1990, 1983 and 1969, prefaced by a glass of Balblair’s base spirit.
The regional malt range features four regions: Speyside, Highland, Islay and Lowland. Each region is presented in a cylindrical carton with a different colour scheme to represent the region.
Duncan Baldwin, senior brand ambassador said: “The Hamiltons product range is designed to encourage regional experimentation. Each expression provides product descriptions for each region in a comprehensive and inviting style.”
The range is bottled at 40%abv and will available in “key European, duty free and selected world markets”. The range is to retail £18 - £22 or €22-26 per bottle.
Angus Dundee distillers also owns the Tomintoul and Glencadem distilleries.
