  1. Sidney87 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nothing spectacular about this 10 year old MOS. Alcohol doesn't seem to be well integrated, it smells and tastes a bit "sparkling". I cannot give the young man here more than 83 p. But for me it is miles away from a JD ... ;-)

  2. Amaliana scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Not my thing
    Tastes almost like Jack Daniels
    Pity
    I actually like Blair Athol
    Because not here at all

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The bourbon influence was really pushed in, a bit too much at the start, but really nice at the back.
    • Nose
      Waxy and fruity fruit basket, apple, peach, orange, also sweet, actually quite nice, great fruit bomb, vanilla, now also clearly marzipan, slightly fresh, floral
    • Taste
      Oily, fruity, vanilla, rather tart, orange, coconut, peach rings, some oak, rather exhausting to start with
    • Finish
      Really sweet again, peach rings from Haribo, nice, still a little coconut, creamy, pleasantly ending

  5. Paulsen scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    After a short time, the sticky, grainy bourbon note disappears and dried fruit and nut notes appear. The alcohol remains quite dominant. Tingly in the mouth and the finish was thin, the nose was the best here

    Difficult to get something out of here somehow, because you IMMEDIATELY get the association with corn whisky, especially Jack Daniels. In the nose, in the mouth and also in the finish.
    However, on a much higher level. Not so cute, much rounder and finer.
    Delicious, but here you have to be careful that no one pours coke in .....

  10. Maltfreak scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    So I think this bottling from Thomas Ewers is incredibly successful. Not a typical Blair Athol, but that's what makes this bottling so special! A whisky with rough edges. Leathery and a lot of dried fruit, maybe a bit of rubber abrasion + candied fruit ..... just great what there is in terms of flavors. Also the dark color, completely untypical for a bourbon hogshead. For me it is more of an indication of a heavily toasted cask.
