Whisky Reviews for Blair Athol 1995 ED

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.45 points

  1. Malt_Shatterhand scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    A very beautiful and imposing Sherry Blair Athol.
    Very complex and very deep, dark and voluminous. Chocolate with strong aromatic oak smokiness. My wife calls this note cat pippi (she still gave 91 points) leather notes, without bitterness.
    I strongly recommend water. Most subtle at around 50%. With further thinning, a slightly bitter wood note dominates the palate. Would be a shame about the wonderful balance. Very strong and pleasantly complex in the mouth. Dark, chocolatey, noticeable hot pepper.
    No smoky bitterness on the finish, slight nuttiness.
    This malt has nothing stale, but is lively old and very very full. Something somber in the background, this Blair Athol has a very pleasant long reverberation:
    A walkway on the edge of a bright meadow. Dark forest beyond. Nearby is an old saddle with spotty dry leather that was in a sherry barrel last year. The whisky scenery is impressive.
