Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré à reflets vieil or.
  • Nose : élégant, complexe. Du beurre salé, des fleurs blanches (muguet) et capiteuses (lys, iris) jaillissent littéralement du verre. Chaleureux, il évolue sur les zestes d’agrumes (mandarine, orange) pour devenir de plus en plus balsamique (pin, eucalyptus). Superbe amertume apportée par la gentiane et la verveine.
  • Palate : ferme, robuste. Une tourbe légère teintée de fumée et de réglisse fait une entrée remarquée. Très vite cependant, elle laisse place aux épices (girofle, gingembre, muscade). Des notes de vanille et de fruits exotiques (banane, ananas) lui procurent ensuite beaucoup de suavité. Plus discrètes, la tourbe et la fumée restent présentes.
  • Overall : longue, concentrée. La menthe et les agrumes (citron jaune) côtoient des fruits secs (amande, noix). Momentanément adoucie par des notes de nougat et de miel d’acacia, la tourbe et la fumée resurgissent avec plus de force. Marine (iode) et maltée, elle se prolonge sur la pêche blanche, le lait de coco, les épices douces (cumin) et la paille sèche.

The brand

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.
