The expressions that will feature at the tastings are Balblair 12 Year Old, Balblair 15 Year Old, Balblair 18 Year Old, Balblair 25 Year Old, and Balblair 2006 #78. Let us give you a short introduction to each of these exciting drams.
The youngest age statement in Balblair's core range. Matured in American oak, ex-bourbon, and double-fired American oak casks, this twelve-year-old expression has an elegant complexity and warmth. The expression recently won Gold Outstanding at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022.
Balblair's stunning 15-year-old expression. Tropical and mature, with the texture of melted chocolate and one of the finest finishes a single malt can bring, this stunning whisky calls for quiet admiration. Round and velvety, yet developed and fresh. Smoothed over by time, but with a beating heart. The dram was the recent winner of Gold at the International Spirits Challenge 2022 and Gold at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022.
A sumptuous 18-year-old dram. This late-night expression is rich and autumnal, developed and amplified to unexpected heights, while staying perfectly balanced and closely tied to the bright and fruity character of the distillery. Spectacular stuff!
The oldest expression in Balblair's core range. Rich, indulgent, and fruity, this is a well-aged dram that you do not want to miss. Another globally acclaimed expression, this single malt has won Gold Outstanding at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022, Gold at the International Spirits Challenge 2022, and Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021.
A spectacular single cask expression, exclusive to members of The W Club. This expression was distilled in 2006 and spent 15 years maturing in a first-fill sherry seasoned Spanish oak butt before bottling in 2021 at an eye-watering cask strength of 55.8% abv. Just 378 bottles were produced and all you lucky folks who buy tickets to the tastings will be able to sample some of this ultra-rare dram!
