Balblair 15 Year Old
With a wealth of tropical fruit perfume and sweet cask influence, this vibrant expression of Balblair is both direct and sumptuous. A beautifully crafted interpretation of the Distillery’s house style, this is a Single Malt in full bloom.
Sumptuous runny honey and spicy vanilla, followed by a wave of a warm pear tart
Vibrant with stewed apples, pineapples in syrup and ground ginger
Long and mellow with notes of lemon zest and bitter chocolate
Matured initially in American oak ex-bourbon casks, followed by the indulgent 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.
