Balblair 2005 1st Release Bottling Note
This is the first release of 2005 vintage Balblair single malt Scotch whisky (which is replacing the 2003 vintage in their core range). An enjoyable expression from the Northern Highlands distillery, matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels and of course is presented in Balblair's very recognisable bottles.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Classic Balblair nose of oak-y vanilla, chocolate-y malt and light wisps of smoke.
Palate: Citrus blossom (and citrus peels) mixed with hints of barrel char spice and treacle tarts.
Finish: Fresh and spiced, with a little more floral malt.
