Customer Rating
A distillery-bottled Balblair from the 2003 vintage. Long known to blenders as a category 'A' malt, Balblair was relaunched in 2007 and releases whiskies by vintage rather than by age.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Soft and sweet, with heather meadows and some honeysuckle. Poached pear, crunchy apples, cream and a hint of sharpness.

    Palate: Sweet and malty, with some lemon zest sharpness up front. Softens in the mouth to reveal more crushed malt, some light cream and a touch of sharp apple. Darker woody notes sit behind, with resin and clove.

    Finish: Gentle and woody, with new oak, rolled oats, soft spice, apple skin and some creaminess.

    Comment: A light dram with more depth than it at first seems - behind the gentle creamy character are some more spicy and woody notes that add complexity without making things too heavy.

    My first try of Balblair following recommendation from Ralfy.com. I'm a fan of peat but being so sweet and fragrant it is a very pleasant change. Extremely floral but it lingers. I've got a few now and intend to followBalblair's offerings

    For the price range, this is about as good as it gets. It replaced the Glenfiddich 14 year as my favourite recently after being given it as a present straight from the distillery. Highly recommended.
