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.

Angelina,
Not happy with the way the scotch was shipped. bottle was secured, but on its side, scotch should not lie on its side, bits of cork in the bottle Light gold color, long legs oily, Honey on the nose, floral, vanilla bean or vanilla cereal, strawberries, apricot ON the palate sweet smoke no peat, caramel, spice, vanilla latte, Smokey wood flavor, add little water big vanilla cake or vanilla coffee water well rounded finish. First time tasting Balblair

Matthew,
8, but then again it’s my first scotch! And I am not a fan of any wet or high smokiness. The after taste is honey and the first sip is tart. It’s really good for a non peety scotch!

colleen,
Really solid flavor with a clean smooth finish. Could do with a bit more full flavor but it’s easy to drink and always pleasant. One of my favorites
