CONNOISSEURS CHOICE 1990 from Balblair Distillery (cask strength)
Created in 1968 by whisky visionary, George Urquhart, over the years this range has featured single malts from almost 100 Scottish distilleries. Comprising more than 2,000 individual bottlings, each Connoisseurs Choice tells its life story through its label: cask type, bottling date, strength, vintage and tasting note.
Soft notes of CINNAMON leads to stewed PLUMS and a hint of ORANGE peel. Muted SHERBET comes to the fore accompanied by subtle STRAWBERRY JAM.
Toasted MALT initially, followed by ripe green APPLE and dry OAK flavours. Soft FRUIT CAKE develops alongside subtle black PEPPER and hints of CASHEW NUTS.
Medium to long finish with ANISEED and desiccated GINGER.
