Customer Rating
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.

Blair Athol 12 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Muscat grapes and maderised wine; a hint of over- the-top Sauternes. More than a whiff of brimstone in the background, even tar. Dried apricots in the foreground, and treacle toffee. Becomes more toffeed as it is exposed to the air. With water, a dense combination of sweet and rich scents, like a basket of dried fruit, with some fresh gooseberries, apricots and oranges, topped by Russian toffees. The winey notes have fallen back

    Palate: In brief… Interesting and unusual sweet aftertaste. in a sentence… A rich, sweet malt best drunk with only a drop of water, when it holds its sweetness better.

    Finish: Very curiously, a sweetness is introduced at the end, after the acidity and dryish finish has passed.

    Numero Uno. Everyone has their center of the dart board scotch and this is mine. Best in the world and worth the shipping cost.

    Wow, love it!, picked up a bottle from the distillery when passing, tried sample which was taken off bottle price, won over immediately. Fruity, sweet, prefer straight

    A very bitter taste... no sweetness at all. Would not recommend it.

    A wonderful malt and one that is not afforded the profile that it deserves. A sherried, fruity and treacled palate that is second to none. A distillery that is always included in my drinking library.

    Discovered this gem on a trip to Scotland. Love it and have it shipped to us in the USA. Worth every penny.

    The nicest highland malt I have ever had. Needs a drop of water to let its favor and scents burst forth. Delivery forecast could stand a little improvement. My favorite whisky at any price.

    I'm from the US. I accidently found this bottle here. It was really good for a 12 years old bottle. Worth every penny. I shared this with my friends and they all love it. I really wish if this can sell in US and can grab it anytime.

    I first tried this when I went fly fishing in Scotland. Our guide asked me what I wanted to drink for lunch. I suggested red wine. Every day he asked again. In the fifth day he asked again. I answered that I had not had any scotch in over 35 years. I did not do well with with scotch and it did not do well with me. He asked me if I would try two fingers and I said yes. Now i drink it routinely. By the way the two fingers were from the thumb to the little finger.
