Balblair 2005 1st Release Bottling Note

This is the first release of 2005 vintage Balblair single malt Scotch whisky (which is replacing the 2003 vintage in their core range). An enjoyable expression from the Northern Highlands distillery, matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels and of course is presented in Balblair's very recognisable bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Classic Balblair nose of oak-y vanilla, chocolate-y malt and light wisps of smoke.

Palate: Citrus blossom (and citrus peels) mixed with hints of barrel char spice and treacle tarts.

Finish: Fresh and spiced, with a little more floral malt.

Balblair 2005 - 1st Release Reviews

Exactly What you expect

Coming from Balblair, I had high hopes for this 12 year old, and I was not disappointed. This classic member of the core offerings is a solid whisky, with the classic Balblair flavor. Not as complex as the 99 or 90, but for the money, this one is a great regular drinker and an easy way to introduce new drinkers to the Balblair offerings. Strongly recommended.

The Balblair 10yo

The annual Balblair '10yo' has become a must have for me every year. They are always outstanding whiskies at a really good price. 46% ABV, non chill filtered and colour free. A very rewarding dram indeed.

A slow satisfying drink

Its Scottish spring which is much the same as winter and summer its cold and wet outside time cold shake off the working day...a mighty fine drink. Full of spice and that feeling of bodily warmth that occurs when you sip a fine whisky a definte buy again.
