Whisky Reviews for Blair Athol 1988 SV

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.90 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 91 points Moderator

    Good complexity, dusty old sherry cask with quite some freshness and punch though - I think this one will get better after a while. This is one of the very few bottlings from the 30th anniversary of Signatory that has a fair pricing but in general all of them are overpriced.

      Intense sherry nose, nutty, hints of fresh rubber and leather, spices, nutmeg, meaty, bacon, milk chocolate, some dried fruits, figs, raisins - needs some air - after also some citrus fruits are showing - quite complex - very good!

      Punchy, creamy, liquorice, more nuts, more dried fruits, tobacco, little leathery, beef bouillon, subtle sweetness, more spices, juicy sherry wood, dark chocolate - great!

      Long, warm, more sherry wood, not drying, zesty, more spices

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Pretty obvious profile on the dried fruit sherry version, a little sulfur. Very generous on spices. In red thread, a small burnt note. In the mouth, tight sherry, beautiful bitterness. Spices. Big presence on the final.

    Enthusiasm 4/5
