This is the first release of 2005 vintage Balblair single malt Scotch whisky (which is replacing the 2003 vintage in their core range). An enjoyable expression from the Northern Highlands distillery, matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels and of course is presented in Balblair’s very recognisable bottles.
BalBlair 2005 (700ml)
This is the first release of 2005-vintage whisky from Balblair, bottled in 2015. The distillery is one of few to bottle by vintage rather than age, and this is sweet and spicy with notes of toffee and vanilla.
Colour: Light sparkling gold.
Nose: Full-bodied with the classic aromas of fresh green apples, ground spices and honey. The American oak, ex-bourbon barrels used for maturation impart notes of oaky vanilla, leather and oranges with a hint of fragrant cut flowers.
Palate: Balblair’s signature style of citrus orchards is followed by intense sweetness of toffee and vanilla rounded off by a deliciously spicy, long finish.
