All about making whisky
The initial nose is a concentrated shot of wonderfully precise Balblair. It’s all there: vanilla, ripe fruit, spices, even medicinal notes, and of course the salt that floods the senses and takes us to breathe in the pure air of the Dornoch Firth. A mineral firmness is added to this, bringing out the superb quality of a rich, powerful distillate which has braved the relentless assaults of time without ageing a bit. This 1988 vintage bottling boasts a long future.

One of the rare distilleries to produce vintage-dated editions (rather than bottles aged for 10, 12, 15 years etc.), Balblair produces a generous, round, fruity and accessible whisky. Bottled at no less than 43% ABV (46% and cask strength for older bottlings), it is one of the rare single malts to remain largely unknown despite being ideal for beginners: no notes of peat or iodine, very rarely woody and always welcoming.
