Description

An exclusive bottling for Royal Mile Whiskies, and what a beauty it is. From a single American oak barrel which yielded just 204 bottles, this is classic modern era Balblair with a gentle, mature character of soft fruits and custard. Bottled at natural cask strength, unchillfiltered and with no artificial colouring.
Tasting Notes
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Gentle and rounded with aromas of honey and vanilla complemented with oak and fruity-apple.
Palate: Spicy with fruity notes of banana, chocolate, creamy vanilla and a slight oaky bitterness rounded off with a warm, smooth, lingering finish with hints of spice, honey and leather.

Staff Tasting Notes
Nose: Initially very bourbon like with notes of vanilla, freshly sawn wood, then gets a little less oaky with sugared almonds, green apples and lemon curd. With water there’s sherbet lemons, green apple skins and cut grass
Palate: Lots of vanilla at first giving way to something sherbet like and effervescent which brings Refesher sweets to mind. Adding water brings a more creamy, fuller mouthfeel and the addition of marzipan and nougat. The finish is quite dry, peppery and oaky.
Overall: Very spritely for its age and full of complexity.
