Balblair 1990 Gordon and MacPhail 29 Year Old Batch #20/017 with Tasting, Tour of G&M for 4 People / Charity Lot
Balblair distillery in situated in the northern Highland region, currently under the ownership of Inver House Distillers and previously part of the Hiram Walker empire before it became Allied Distillers. Allied sold it to Inver House in 1996, who introduced the much-loved vintage-dated core range in 2007. Distillery bottlings were also produced in the 1980s but in the intervening years, independent releases like this were the most commonly available way to sample this lesser-known Highland single malt.
Hiram Walker licensed the Balblair single malt brand to Gordon & MacPhail in order to produce official releases in the 1970s and 1980s, not having the capacity to do so itself at the time. This good standing with the distillery furnished the Elgin-based independent firm with a steady supply of high-quality casks, and subsequently, high-quality releases.
The Connoisseurs Choice label is one of the most recognisable independent bottlings on the market, and this release follows the 2018 rejuvenation of the brand, which saw it reimagined as a premium single casks range.
Gordon & MacPhail will take you on a thrilling journey through their illustrious history with a selection of unique and rare whiskies to taste. This promises to be a memorable experience for whisky lovers.
Travel to and from Elgin, as well as meals and accommodation are not included.
