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.
Importer and distributor Drinks21 has just launched the product in the UK and it is being rolled out in Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Austria, Estonia, Russia and Ukraine.
The cognac has been made to serve over ice to “maximize flavour explosion”. The 40% abv drink comes with a 70cl white bottle with a suggested retail price of £40.
