A lot containing three whiskies including a Balblair Elements, a Bailie Nicol Jarvie, and a Prince Charlie blend.

Balblair Elements

Balblair is owned by InverHouse Distillers and boasts one of the oldest histories of any distillery in Scotland. The distillery owes a huge debt to lawyer and energetic businessman Robert "Bertie" Cumming who purchased the distillery in 1948 after years of silence and went on to expand and modernise the distillery. Part of this modernisation includes a contemporary visitor centre running excellent tours that highlight the distillery's starring role in Ken Loach's 2012 movie 'The Angels' Share'. Balblair has also changed from oil to gas to reduce their ecological footprint.

This lot is a creation of elements, distilled where the Air is said to be the Purest in Scotland. A long discontinued bottling from Balblair.

40% ABV / 70cl

Bailie Nicol Jarvie

The brand was relaunched in 1994 by Nicol Anderson & Co. Ltd, based in Leith near Edinburgh.

The composition of the blend was changed from the original recipe due to market forces. Only eight single malts from the Highlands (including Glenmorangie), Islay and Speyside (including Glen Moray) are blended together with grain whisky from the Girvan distillery in Ayrshire.

In comparison, many blended whiskies contain between 20-40 single malts. The minimum maturation time in a cask is six years and the final BNJ whisky contains 60% single malt and 40% grain whisky.

In 2014 the product was discontinued and is slowly becoming difficult to source.

40% ABV / 70cl

Prince Charlie

This blend is named after Bonnie Prince Charlie and there is a silhouette of him on the label.

This whisky is from Lawson & Smith Ltd.

40% ABV / 75cl

Please note minor wear to labels.
