BALBLAIR

The Balblair distillery originally dates back to 1790. Founder John Ross ran Balblair as a thriving business and in 1824 he was joined by his son, Andrew. The distillery stayed in the Ross family until 1894 when the tenancy was taken over by Alexander Cowan who relocated and rebuilt the distillery - ostensibly to be closer to existing railway lines. However, so good was the original water source that the rebuilt distillery chose to ignore a nearby burn in favour of the original Ault Dearg Burn. To this day, the Balblair Distillery continues to use this original water source.

Balblair is what you imagine a distillery should be. It sits on an ancient Pictish gathering place, tucked away near the banks of the Dornoch Firth. Their time-intensive methods make for more flavour-intensive malts. In the words of Distillery Manager, John MacDonald, “making whisky should be a craft, not a process.” And he ensures this runs through every aspect of what Balblair does, right down to how the casks are labelled. 

This late-night expression is rich and autumnal, developed and amplified to unexpected heights, while staying perfectly balanced and closely tied to the bright and fruity character of the Distillery.

Nose: Rich toffee and baked pears shine bright against an elegant backdrop of new leather. 

Palate: A masterful balance of juicy apricots, seasoned oak and vanilla custard 

Finish: Long and warming with chords of fresh spices and raisins
