A rich, sweet malt best drunk with only a drop of water, when it holds its sweetness better.

Serving Suggestion:
Blair Athol works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water.

Region A little-known Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Appearance Polished mahogany.
Body Medium to full bodied, but not cloying.
Nose Muscat grapes and Madeira wine, brimstone in the background, even tar. Dried apricots in the foreground, and treacle toffee.
Palate Rich and mouth-filling, with a good balance.
Finish A curious sweetness is introduced at the end, after the acidity and dryish finish has passed.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

The nose is mellow and sherried, with brittle toffee. Sweet and fragrant. Relatively rich on the palate, with malt, raisins, sultanas and sherry. The finish is lengthy, elegant and slowly drying.

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.85

The obvious sherry ageing really suits Blair Athol. It is a malt that matures quickly, and this is very sophisticated for its age. A lovely whisky.

Michael Jackson 2000, Whisky Magazine, Issue 11

The nose is rich and full, with orange and citrus fruit. The palate, too, is big and chunky, with some tannin and spice in the mix, and water, parma violet notes.
