Founded in 1790, Balblair Distillery is the second oldest working whisky distillery in Scotland. The distillery is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, where the Ross-shire burns flow down the Struie Hill to the farmlands of Edderton and down onwards to the shores of the Dornoch Firth. The surname Ross has particular relevance in the area. The distillery was founded by John Ross and remained in his family until 1894. The air in Edderton where Balblair Distillery is situated, is considered to be the purest in Scotland. It is said that this fourth element combined with the other elements gives Balblair malt whisky its smooth, light, delicate and refreshing taste.
 

Balblair Tasting Notes


Balblair is a light aromatic Highland Malt.

Balblair Elements Tasting Notes.
A light, fresh whisky with a hint of autumn mist, sweet to start with an appetising citrus tinge and a slightly peaty note as it slides over the back of the tongue. An intriguingly complex and satisfying whisky.

Balblair 10 Year Old Tasting Notes.
Colour: Golden amber with a pink hue. Nose: Sweet fruits, vanilla and toffee notes with a hint of dried fruit and oak. Taste: Light to medium bodied, creamy and smooth, sweet fading to a smoky finish.

Balblair 16 Year Old Tasting Notes.
Medium to full bodied, sweet and lightly fruity with a toffee character. A beautifully balanced whisky with a round smooth finish.

Balblair 33 Year Old Tasting Notes.
Following the success of Balblair Elements and Balblair 16 Year old Balblair introduced a Limited Edition 33 Year Old malt. Bottled at its natural cask strength of 45.4%vol. Colour: Golden Honey. Nose: Sweet toffee with a hint of vanilla and a slight fruity character. Taste: Satisfyingly smooth with a rich full flavour and a slightly dry note to finish.
