Vintage Single Malt.

The Highlands are irreplaceable — yielding some of the finest single malt Whisky in the world. But there is something magic about Ross-shire. Along the southern coast of the Dornoch Firth at the base of ancient, Celtic limestone hills, a cluster of natural springs there feed a blessed few distilleries with what may be the best water in the world for Whisky.

John Ross founded Balblair in 1790. To this day they have only 1 wash and 1 spirit still. And 100% of production goes into their single malt vintage series — each one unique, rare, and special.

All Balblair Single Malts are issued by vintage, and this is no exception. Even though Balblair 2003 was aged 10 years exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks, that influence definitely takes a back seat. Instead, you definitely taste the malt dancing on the palate.

Think of it less as a “sit by a roaring Winter fire” dram and more of a “sit on the porch to watch the fireflies” kind of sipper.

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
