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
