Balblair 15 Year Old
Tropical and mature, with the texture of melted chocolate and one of the finest finishes a single malt can bring, this stunning whisky calls for quiet admiration. Round and velvety, yet developed and fresh. Smoothed over by time, but with a beating heart.
Leatherwood honey and spicy gingerbread followed by juicy prunes and fresh lemon peel
Velvety in texture, bursting with dark chocolate, tropical fruit and spices
Long and mellow, with notes of creamy vanilla and citrus
Matured initially in American oak ex-bourbon casks, followed by the rich influence of first fill Spanish oak butts
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.
