BALBLAIR 1997 Bourbon Cask LMDW Cellar Book Of 56,8%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 53454

Remarkably classic, the initial herbaceous, vegetal, floral, malty and marine character of this bottling will delight fans of Balblair. After this, full of passionate and inspiring energy, it allows itself to express an incredibly rich and exotic lyricism. Creating a dreamlike atmosphere, from its gustatory and olfactory heights, it invites us to take our time to enjoy earthly and maritime landscapes in which malted barely plays both an altruistic and dominating role.

Profile: the very refined nose evokes cut hay and heady florals before malted barley makes its majestic entrance. Exotic fruits are then revealed (pineapple, banana). The palate brings out the exotic character of the nose (passion fruit) whilst also revealing honey notes. Increasingly generous (Aix calisson) and salty, a vegetal (verbena) finish follows. The retro-nasal olfaction centres on chocolate and vanilla.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep golden yellow.
  • Nose : fine, ethereal. With notes of cut hay, the initial nose is also floral (lilac, violet). Next, from deeper within the glass and piercing the surface of the aromatic palette, malted barley makes its majestic entrance. Bathed in a gentle breeze, the nose becomes increasingly salty and medicinal (balm). Citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit) and exotic fruit (banana, pineapple) arrive in a grand finale. By this point, the nose has becoming much more powerful.
  • Palate : delicate, scented. At first, mango and passion fruit add extra exoticism to the attack, as lavender honey spreads across the taste buds. This very aromatic entrance is particularly original. Then, on the mid-palate, malted barley comes bounding back. With lots of dessert notes, the gustatory palette lingers with notes of Aix calissons and lemon meringue pie. Just like the nose, the palate continues to increase in power, creating a very pleasant salty sensation.
  • Overall : balanced, just as perfumed. Wavering between aromatic plants (verbena, rosemary), red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry), mineral notes (slate, sandstone) and freshly cut grass, the finish transcends the aromatic and gustatory palette. In typical Balblair fashion, the retro-nasal olfaction is serene whilst remaining robust. Refreshed by a sea breeze, it gradually moves into notes of chocolate and vanilla. The empty glass reveals fruit (apple, pear), liquorice and roots (ginger).
The brand

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.
