Watches and Whisky:

1969: Whiskies from Balblair are completely unique, each named after the year it was laid in cask. Each Vintage is selected when it has reached its absolute peak of perfection, hand-picked to represent the very best that the Distillery has to offer. Balblair Distillery was established in 1790 and is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland and the oldest in the Highlands. Balblair is situated by the beautiful Dornoch Firth on the sweep of the Cambuscurrie Bay and close to the original source of its water, which is still used to this day. Balblair 1969 is a scotch that requires patience and is a vintage that displays remarkable complexity and balance. Truly the jewel in the crown for Balblair. Originally released in the States in late 2012, this vintage has recently been launched for the rest of world for all to savour.

On the nose: you’ll be welcomed with sweet notes of vanilla. Notes of a cedar wood nature will start to appear followed by flavours of deep toffee notes. Some wafts of liquorice will emerge, along with some dried figs, a touch of smoke and spicy oak. On the palate: those rich, deep, sweet toffee notes will make their presence known, along with the vanillas and spices. Those dried fig notes and cedar wood will slowly start to appear. There is a lovely note of fragrant incense floating around, accompanied with those hints of smoke. The finish: is medium to long, sweet and spicy with a lingering oak. ... rket=miami

I like whiskey. It gets me jaked good and quick. I generally don't notice the rich, deep, sweet toffee notes, along with the vanillas and spices, the dried fig notes and cedar wood and the lovely note of fragrant incense floating around, plus those hints of smoke. When I start staggering around, I know it's time for bed!
