Taste note

  • Colour:

    Copper

  • Nose:

    Cherry and demerara sugar give off a syrupy quality to the dram. Fresh garden mint and toffee meet in the middle. Near the end, the aroma of orange and nutmeg is found.

  • Palate:

    The dram has a honey-like sweetness to it but is not syrupy compared to the nose. Very balanced and complex on the palate with orange segment and dried cherry fill out the middle. It is earthy near the end with oak spices and some peat.

  • Finish:

    A dry, long and complex finish. With oak spices, peat smoke and earthy notes in the finish.

  • Conclusion:

    The 25-year-old whisky is better balanced than the 18-year-old. While it offers fruit both on the nose and palate, it has a tad too much oak and earth. Out of the Balblair collection, this age statement comes in second place.
