Balblair 12 Year Old70cl / 46%
- Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
The elegant and approachable Balblair 12 Year Old is the first whisky in the Balblair Collection and has been matured in a combination of double-fired American oak casks and ex-bourbon casks. The result is a whisky with a warm, complex character and a sweet, citrusy aroma. The palate offers notes of oranges, honey and cinnamon before a long, creamy finish with hints of vanilla and leather.

Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Apples, lemons and limes to start, with citrusy cookie dough – oatmeal and candied lemon – with a dusting of golden sugar. Fresh apricot with honey and sultanas follows.
Sweet and fruity, with apple leading the way – apple sauce, freshly sliced and baked with a hint of spice. Vanilla balanced darker notes of liquorice root, dark chocolate and a touch of damp oak.
More biscuits, with apple-studded cookies dusted with cinnamon slowly fading to leave sweet spice.

Was lucky enough to be on a first tour today for the lauch of their new age statement range. The 12 is delightul easy drinking citrus punch, but I preferred the 15. However, I still ended up buying a bottle as it was too good not to.
