This is the first release of 2005 vintage Balblair single malt Scotch whisky. Only a handful of American oak, ex-bourbon casks laid down in 2005 were selected by Distillery Manager John MacDonald to form this classic Balblair expression. Bottled in 2017.
Full bodied with the classic aromas of fresh green
apples, ground spices and honey. The American oak
ex-bourbon barrels used in maturation impart notes of
oaky vanilla, leather and oranges with a hint of fragrant cut
flowers and smoke.
Balblair’s signature style of citrus orchards is followed
by intense sweetness of toffee and vanilla.
Rounded off by a deliciously spicy, long finish. The superb dram is bright and full of character, a ray of sunshine in a bottle.
