Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: 12 Years Old Country: Scotland
It is not only playing a big part in the movie ‘Angels Share’ that has made this distillery famous but the exceptional whisky it produces. This distillery was built in 1790 however was built on a site that had sited a distillery 40 years prior. This area of the Dornoch Firth is well known for its ancient archaeology. The water source for this distillery is a burn (or stream for the Australian readers) called Allt Dearg which helps this distillery produce 1,330,000 litres of whisky per year. This is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and has been built in an amazingly scenic part of the country which boasts peaty streams and lush green fields. From this distillery you should expect a wonderfully light and fresh whisky with a nutty aftertaste and clean finish, a delightful memorable whisky.
This Balblair aged 12 years is part of the newly launched core range from this old distillery. The distillery decided to say goodbye to Vintages and move to age statements. Smart move in a market that is losing age statements every day. The Balblair 12 years old was matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and double-fired American oak casks. A fruit forward whisky with earthy characters and lots of creaminess.
