Bright copper in colour.
The nose is full bodied with aromas of seasoned oak, baked red apples and fruitcake, followed by warming vanilla and ripe tropical stone fruits. Rich and balanced, this classic Balblair nose tells the story of its charismatic spirit and perfect ageing.
On the palate, the whisky is slightly oily in texture. Ground spices and old hardwood strike first chords in this elegant and rewarding dram, building up to brighter flavours of tinned pineapples, bitter orange peel and honey.
The finish builds up slowly with lasting sweetness, creaminess and notes of bitter chocolate.
