Whisky reviews for Blair Athol 2009 V&M

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.67 points.

  1. Pippuzzo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Love this. Liquid Panettone, as someone described it, is the right definition for this classic sherried Blair Athol. Better than the 12 flora & fauna ob of past years and a lot better than the most recent ones.

  2. Till90 scored this whisky 76 points Member Senior

    Very strong sherry influences that this young whisky shows

    A lot of sweetness from dried fruits, in the foreground prunes

    The finish is pleasant, but could be a little longer lasting

  3. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This is going to appeal to Sherry Bomb seekers and malt drinkers alike! Its a quality youthful malt with a well developed palate... perfect dram to begin a night or to sit with after dinner!
    • Nose
      85 85
      The nose is lovely and fresh, wine-y and sweet. Malty and hints of bay or tea leaves. The youth is almost non existent here.. it drink well above it’s age statement here.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The palate is fresh and sweet. Spice cake and brandy beans (dark cocoa brandy filled sweets), multivitamin and dry leaves. Nice to see a real quality sherry cask for once.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Finish is longer than you’d think. Punchy oak spice and a sharp note of youth and pepper. Quality dram for such an age!
