A great, but sadly neglected, Highlander, Blair Athol is one of the gems of the Flora & Fauna range. This expression has always tended towards the chunky, sherried style, with spices and oak adding complexity to rich maltiness. We felt that it was time to remind people about this over-looked dram.

I like the way it is made using as much of the traditional method that modern health and safety will allow, this in my humble opinion is more like the whisky's of old which made the country synonymous with Uisce Beatha ( whiskey to us non Gaelic speaking people) or I prefer the direct translation Uisce; meaning water and Beatha meaning life, so lifewater or water of life...

I simply don't understand the positive ratings below for this whisky. The nose is OK but it nevers opens completely (even with water). The flavour is totally off balance - not worth the money. Buy a 15 y.o. Glenfarclas instead - that's a real gem.

I absolutely love this whisky. Received a bottle for Christmas, and am now struggling not to finsh it too quickly!! Really sweet with honey notes and a long finish. Highly recommended.

My favourite. Can't bear anything light and 'honeyed', this is slightly caramel on the nose and then it's big, smooth and delightful.

Yeah! When can we get this in the states? We can't afford to go to Scotland every few months to replenish our stock? If it is sadly neglected, open a new market!!!
