Scotland > Highland > Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Balblair
The 2003 vintage Balblair was bottled in 2013 at approximately 46%. The vintage was matured exclusively in Ex-Bourbon oak giving it a very creamy and delicate character. This is a great introduction to the Balblair style.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: soft, creamy and fruity with delicate floral tones, malt and fresh peaches; a hint of green grasses alludes to its youth, some silky white chocolate and lemon peel soften things out.
Palate: honeyed and toasty, loads of vanilla and chewy malt with more peachy fruits and zesty lemon peel; the whisky is very balanced and pleasant with hints of almond, more white chocolate and subtle floral tones.
Finish: bright, creamy and fresh with fading vanilla and soft fruity notes.
Comment: a very pleasant easy drinking malt, and great value!
Distiller's Tasting Note
Aroma: On the nose there are the signature Balblair aromas: floral and fragrant punctuated with citrus fruits, apricots and honey.
Palate: On the palate it is full bodied, with notes of oranges, lemon, honey and spice.
Finish: The long lasting finish is sweet yet spicy; a superbly well-balanced dram.
