So Balblair have announce a new vintage to replace the 2000 release. Well, its 2001 and apparently marks some changes for this excellent distillery...
- Now bottled at 46% it is non chill filtered. All subsequent Vintage releases will be bottled at at this strength or above
- New packaging retains the distinctive and brightly coloured box but it has been slightly reduced in width so it is more convenient to carry and uses less packaging materials
- The label has been redesigned and moved to a higher position on the bottle for better legibility
I'm still enjoying the 1997 vintage so this has already onto my 'must buy' list for the New Year.
