Balblair 18 Year


This bottle was featured in mini form on Day 20 of our 2020 KWM Whisky Calendar.

50ml Mini bottles can be found here.

Part of the new core range from Balblair Distillery, which focuses on age statement rather than vintages. Bottled at 46% after maturing in ex-Bourbon and finishing in First Fill ex-Sherry Seasoned Spanish Oak Butts. Bottled at 46%, unchillfiltred with no colouring added.

Evan’s Tasting Note

Nose: Apple turnover, honey glazed donuts, pears, Mounds bars, fresh coffee beans, and Ovaltine.

Palate: Cinnamon cake doughnuts, raisin and nut shortbread cookies, apples and pears, more honey, lemon-ginger tea, and Werther’s Originals.

Finish: A touch of spice plus soft apples, honey and toffee and a touch of shortbread.

Comment: This is a very well put together 18 Year Single Malt Scotch. Many will miss the vintage releases of Balblair, but having a bottle like this to come back to time and time again might just be worth the tradeoff.

Producer Tasting Note

Aroma: Rich toffee and baked pears shine bright against an elegant backdrop of new leather.

Palate: A masterful balance of juicy apricots, seasoned oak and vanilla custard.

Finish: Long and warming with chords of fresh spices and raisins.
