A distillery I could become a big fan of if I had access to a larger range of there product.

I have the 85 which seems to get very mixed reviews.

Personally, from memory, I thought that it was very good but will need to try again

The 75 always gets rave reviews. I wonder how much better / different it is.

Are they all so different?

I picked up a bottle of the 1997 on the weekend and I am really looking forward to opening it this summer as by the notes it is a hot weather scotch.

I had a buddy that went off to vacation in the land'o'malts.
I sent him off with a US Franklin and instructions to bring us back a bottle or two of something "cool" that an average Joe could lay hands on.
He brought back two Balblair releases.
1997 and 1989.
We went through the 97 pretty quick and it was GREAT!
(i would agree it to be a "summer" dram)
The 89 is still un-opened!
What I would like to know...if possible....
The Balblair distillery runs year round but only bottles/barrels up occasionally, right?
If that is correct...what do they do with the rest?
Is there a blend that I should be looking for?
I am really curious about this distillery and from my side of the pond, I would like some help learning more.
Thanks in advance.
