Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose:

      Cinnamon-dusted baked apples, coated in Demerara sugar. Very bright and fruity, with notes of fresh orange peel, cherry pie and a hint of marzipan and nutmeg. Fresh and inviting.

    • Palate:

      Fruity and creamy, with sharp green apple contrasted with creaminess and a touch of clove and cinnamon. There’s some citrus peel in there to add zing, too.

    • Finish:

      Spiced oranges, along with top-notch freshly turned wood.

    • Comment:

      I always associate Balblair with green apples and fresh fruit, and this is no exception. Clean and refreshing, enlivened with a little cream and spice.

  • Proiducer's Tasting Notes

    • Sweet vanilla, apple and zesty lemon aromas.

      The palate is sweet and creamy with pear, apricot and banana, complemented by toasted oak.
