Balblair 12 Year Old
In the fine balance of fruit, spice and sweetness, Balblair 12 Year Old encapsulates the gentle charisma of the Highlands. Elegant and approachable, this is the defining expression of Balblair Distillery, one to which all others refer.
Elegant bright lemon peel layered with creamy vanilla and crisp green apples
Ground spices and dried orange slices enveloped in intense set honey sweetness
Creamy and leathery with notes of sweet vanilla
Matured in American oak ex-bourbon & double-fired American oak casks, bringing elegant complexity and warmth
Every Scotch whisky distillery is different. From its location and water source, to its still shape and wood policy. These are all determining factors in how a whisky tastes.
The Balblair collection is intriguingly complex and satisfying. We capture the intense esters at the start of the spirit cut to give our Whisky the core characteristics of apricots, oranges, spices, floral notes and green apples. The heavier oils and lipids at the end of the cut are also captured, giving leathery, nutty and full-bodied characteristics.
