Description

A long term favourite of Royal Mile Whiskies this is the reigning champion Spirit of Whisky Fringe 2016. It is matured in a combination of American Oak ex-bourbon and Spanish Oak ex-sherry casks giving it a huge wealth of character and flavour.

Please Note: The silver Spirit of Whisky Fringe Award coaster is not included.
Tasting Notes
Staff Tasting Notes
Nose: Freshly peeled oranges and pears. There is some expected raisin notes from the sherry influence but it’s still surprisingly fresh and citrusy. Notes of grapefruits appear once left for a while.
Palate: Very smooth, delicate dark chocolate notes move over the palate. Hot raisins with only some of the citrus character hinted from the nose.
Finish: Homemade chocolate cake, loads of cocoa. Stunning! Really balanced with its sweet and rich characters. Once again the citrus notes appear later but in a small amount, oranges and grapes in particular.
Comments: All you would want from a sherried Balblair, all that light fruitiness perfectly balanced with beautiful chocolate notes. Definitely one for a sunset!

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: The aroma is spicy yet sweet and is punctuated with notes of raisins, toffee and honey. Hints of vanilla, chocolate and citrus fruits are also present.
Palate: On the palate it is full bodied; sweet and spicy in character with hints of honey, raisins and zesty fruits.
Finish: The finish is smooth and long-lasting.
