Balblair 18 Year Old is the third whisky in the Balblair Collection and has been matured in ex-bourbon casks before being finished in first-fill Spanish oak butts. The result is a charismatic single malt with a rich toffee and pear aroma, with a hint of warm spices and leather. The palate offers notes of ripe apricots and raisins balanced by toasted oak and vanilla custard, before a long, warming finish filled with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.  

TASTING NOTES

NOSE Apple pie with raisins: the top is dotted with a caramelised filling that's bubbled up while cooking. Marzipan hints become full-on fruit cake with royal icing – old school Christmas cake.
PALATE Soft, rounded and sweet, with spice and darker, singed notes building. Buttery sponge turns dark and fruity as Christmas-cake fruit and spice builds. Raisins and charred oak provide a backdrop for burnt sugar and fruity dark chocolate.
FINISH Charred staves and rich dunnage warehouse earthiness fade to leave cinnamon and raisins.

 

This wonderful single malt comes with the Balblair branded whisky glass.
