Whisky Reviews for Blair Athol 1988 MBa

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.63 points

  1. Simon Stood scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    An interesting pattern that takes time to understand and appreciate. I would like a little more classic bourbon fresh sweetness on the palate.
    Balance 22-22.5.
    Total 89-90. It might be worth trying after a while

      The aroma does not open immediately, you need to let it breathe. Very interesting and intense over time. Lovers of bourbon casks should appreciate.
      Saturated duchess, melted sugar candies, sour cocktail. 22.5-23
    • Taste
      89 89
      Suddenly there is salt, dark raisins, dried lightly smoked pear. The taste is inferior to the aroma. 22-22.5
    • Finish
      90 90
      The aftertaste is soft, fruity, there is a light peppercorn and hateful spices. 22.5
