This indulgent, full-bodied Balblair 25 Years Old is the final whisky in the Balblair Collection and has been matured in ex-bourbon casks before being finished in Spanish oak butts.
Nose: Dunnage warehouse and farmyard earth, fragrant oak and spirit with a touch of funk and fruit. Candied necklaces, meadow flowers, runny honey and both apples and apple blossom bloom. It lightens as it sits in the glass, with notes of waffles and syrup at the back and candied lemon upfront.
Palate: Elegant and full of orchard flavours – apples and green leaves, hedgerows and flowers, earthy spice and old oak. Spiced biscuits with honey and apple cookies sit on top, with dark, damp oak and soft char underneath.
Finish: A flash of anise leads to icing-sugar sweetness and lingering apple.
This excellent single malt comes with the Balblair branded whisky glass.
