The now rare Balbair Elements is a delightful Highlands single-malt offering lively peaty aromas of black chocolate, heather and a hint of honey. On the palate there is a firm and dry mouthfeel complemented by round flavours of shortbread, raspberries and a hint of spice. The finish is very good as the flavours continue to develop over time, with good fruit complexity and a touch of smoke and more heather.
3 Point Summary
