Ripe pear and stewed rhubarb steeped in honey and decadent raspberry jam mature into sweet meadow grasses complemented by underlying fresh lemon and lime edge. Balanced, crisp green apple wrapped in salted dark chocolate accompanied by hints of peaches and cream and gentle menthol nuances. Light aniseed and warming white pepper develop on the finish whilst highlights of fresh lemon zest adds depth.
About the Producer
Balblair Distillery sits on the idyllic coast of the Dornoch Firth. It's there, since they rolled out their first barrels in 1790, that they've been producing award-winning Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky. At Balblair they only ever release their whisky when it's ready. Every year their Distillery Manager, John MacDonald, selects whiskies that have reached their exact point of 'optimum maturation', the peak of perfection. That's why they only create Vintages timed to perfection.Scotland Highland 0.43
