Customer Rating

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.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • 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.

    I'm getting almost alfalfa or Timothy hay as a top note
