A ludicrously good value bottling of Balblair from stalwart bottlers, Gordon & MacPhail. This bottling forms part of the MacPhail’s Collection, which offers drinkers an affordable opportunity to try high quality whiskies from G&M’s world-famous reserves.
A classic Balblair in many respects, this bottling (which sits at a very respectable 21 years of age) offerings all the precise Highland flavours of citrus, fresh berries, spice and old oak that we’ve come to expect from this distillery.
This bottling opens with a gently nutty note of almonds and hazelnuts, joined by caramel, sugared citrus, vanilla, berries and toasted oak.
A comforting, warming dram, this is a testament to the peerless cask management of Gordon and MacPhail.
