About Balblair 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Balblair, founded in 1790 by John Ross, is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. The distillery was operated by the Ross family until the late 19th century, when James Ross gave up the tenancy of Balblair to Alexander Cowan, a wine merchant from Inverness. In 1911, Balblair ceased its distilling operations, and in 1932 the last whisky from the era was bottled. In 1948, Balblair resumed production under the stewardship of Robert James "Bertie" Cumming, a solicitor from Banff, who purchased the distillery for £48,000 a year later. In 1970, he sold the company to Hiram Walker, and throughout the 1980s extensive investments were made in the development of the distillery’s facilities. The distillery, located in the Highland village of Edderton, was acquired by Inver House Distillers in 1996.

The production of Balblair’s single malt Scotch whisky can be characterized by passion and patience. Balblair’s Distillery Manager John MacDonald says that "making whisky should be a craft, not a process," and the team follows his philosophy down to the letter. They honor century-old traditions by distilling at their own naturally considered pace, and create their whisky with care, dedication and experience, and always remain focused on the quality of the end result, not quantity. Respect for the whisky is reflected in every step of its making. Before they are left to rest, the casks are hand-stenciled and dated by the men who filled them. In 2019, the distillery released a new range of age-statement expressions that range from 12 to 25 years, each unique but all showing the true highland spirit.

Balblair 15 Year Old is a stunning single malt Scotch whisky that calls for quiet admiration. The spirit is initially matured in American oak ex-Bourbon casks, followed by the rich influence of first fill Spanish oak butts. The whisky is non-chill filtered and bottled at 92 proof.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.

The nose starts with the aromas of leatherwood honey and spicy gingerbread, followed by juicy prunes and fresh lemon peel. The palate is velvety, bursting with dark chocolate, tropical fruit and spices. The finish is long and mellow, with notes of creamy vanilla and citrus.
