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.
Entries have been invited from all member companies, across a range of price points and categories. The selection will be made by a panel of judges including Masters of Wine and industry specialists.
The Hero Selection is the first initiative in the ‘Taste a New Romania’ campaign, designed to redress trade opinion of Romanian wines. The Hero Selection will be unveiled on the Romanian Winegrowers stand at the London International Wine Fair (LIWF).
Paul Evans, UK spokesperson for Romanian Winegrowers said: ”It is critical that the trade starts to taste Romanian wine again. There has been such huge investment and staggering increases in quality over the last few years that there is finally a story to tell. The Hero Selection will provide a starting point, a chance to start exploring the potential of this country.”

The Romanian Winegrowers is an independent body made up of a group of wine producers throughout Romania.
