Balblair 21 Year Old
This 21 Year Old Whisky started its journey maturing in American Oak Ex-bourbon barrels for fifteen years. However, its distinctive character was created by an extended further maturation period.
Pineapple and apricots intertwined with aromatic cinnamon and nutmeg followed by toffee apples and honey
Tropical flavours of mango and pineapple laced with warming notes of cloves and ginger
Long and lingering with notes of dark chocolate and tropical fruit
Matured in American oak ex-bourbon & double-fired American oak casks, bringing elegant complexity and warmth for 15 years. Further matured in the finest, hand selected, Spanish Oak seasoned with Oloroso Wine Casks.
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.
