Part of the brand-new lineup from Balblair, this 12 year old returns the distillery to age statements as opposed to its vintage releases. Matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks, this Balblair is beautifully fresh and fruity, with lemon peel, creamy vanilla and a green apple aromas. The palate is succulent and oily, with more citrus again (dried orange) and spices, with a honeyed tone throughout. Finishing sweet and vanilla'd, it lingers with a leathery oaky note. A classic aromatic and fruity Highland single malt.
