When someone tells you to picture a quintessential, traditional Scottish distillery in the remote beauty of the one and only the Highlands, the image that pops to your mind is probably pretty close to that of Balblair.

It's one of the oldest Scottish distilleries, founded in 1790 by John Ross. If you know the motto of their current, long-time Distillery Manager John MacDonald who says that "making Whisky should be a craft, not a process", it makes sense that Balblair is famous for releasing only vintage Highland Single Malt expressions. In 2019, however, this changed, and they also said bienvenido to age statements. A new range of age statement expressions was released, each one of them rare and unique, but all of them beaming with pure Highland Spirit.

The 15 Year Old is the second Whisky in the Balblair collection. It was matured first in American oak ex-Bourbon casks and later moved to first fill Spanish oak butts. This is a stunning Single Malt Whisky, full-bodied and velvety, with the texture of melted chocolate, ready to seduce you with its maturity. It might be even smoother than that 90s RnB song you used to put on in the evenings, but at the same time, it never lost its unmistakable, sharp Scottish character. Let yourself be seduced by this one and you'll never want to look back.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
