- ABV 43%
Balblair Distillery, located in the Northern Highlands of Scotland was founded by John Ross in 1790 on the shores of the Dornoch Firth in the village of Edderton. This village takes its name from the ancient settlement of Eadar Dun, meaning 'between the forts'. It is on the very hills where these 'forts' reside that the pure water of the Ault Dearg burn runs freely, supplying the distillery with the same rich source for over 200 years.
Every year the Distillery Manager, John MacDonald, selects the finest examples of Balblair from the maturing whiskies which he believes best exemplify the distillery style. Of the thousands of barrels sampled each year, only a limited number are bottled as Balblair Vintage, several of which have just arrived in Australia.
'Easily the most true to style distillery bottling
for the last 20 years'.
88 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2008
Tasting note: Nose: Substantial with good maturity. Orange peel and ginger, drying grass, barley sugar, passion fruit, banana skin and a wholemeal maltiness. Palate: Very silky with marzipan, sweet nut and dried tropical fruits, peach. Honeycomb, chocolate and mint. Multi-layered and surprisingly deep. Finish: Immensely long. Trickles down the back of the throat. Comment: A stunner. Rating: 90 points.- Dave Broom, www.whiskymag.com
