Age: No age statement Years Old
Year Bottled: 2015
Style: Single Malt
Slightly earthy and leathery, with citrus fruit, mixed spices and cocoa powder.
Viscous in the mouth, with a surprisingly big, spicy hit of sweet, fruity sherry. This dries back to raisins, countered by honey and vanilla.
Very long, and spicy to the end, with a sherry and orange tang.
We tend to think that Balblair’s spirit character is best suited by ex-Bourbon barrels, but this is a good example of how well it handles sherry wood, too.
