Balblair 25 Year Old
For over a quarter of a century, this rare Single Malt has developed and mellowed, becoming concentrated, full-bodied and indulgent, brimming with the dark intensity of chocolate praline and spices.
Indulgent overripe apricots and dark liquorice stand out against polished oak and a touch of saddle wax
Full-bodied with oily citrus, chocolate praline and a faint note of fresh tobacco leaf
Warming with smooth chocolate and blood oranges
Matured initially in American oak ex-bourbon casks, and then reshaped over the years in Spanish oak for exceptional complexity
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.
