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.Tasting Notes (1)

Producer's Tasting Notes
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.
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.
Very curiously, a sweetness is introduced at the end, after the acidity and dryish finish has passed.

Good drop at a very reasonable price.
Outstanding Scotch whisky. Very flavorful and smooth - one of the best ever.
Numero Uno. Everyone has their center of the dart board scotch and this is mine. Best in the world and worth the shipping cost.
