It's here, since we rolled out our first barrels in 1790, that we've been producing award-winning Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky. At Balblair we only ever release our whisky when it's ready. Every year our Distillery Manager, John MacDonald, selects whiskies that have reached their exact point of 'optimum maturation', the peak of perfection. That's why we only create Vintages timed to perfection.
Our Vintages are intriguingly complex and satisfying. We capture the intense esters at the start of the spirit cut to give our Vintages the core characteristics of apricots, oranges, spices, floral notes and green apples. The heavier oils and lipids at the end of the cut are also captured, giving leathery, nutty and full-bodied characteristics.
