Whisky reviews for Blair Athol 1995 ED

4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 90.47 points.

  1. BunnaMan scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Herbs, Oranges, Plums. Very perfumy whisky for a Blair Athol, usually a more nutty and cereal whisky.
    • Taste
      Needs some water with this high abv. European oak spicy and sherry sweet with red berries and walnuts. Warming.
      Some bitterness mixed with the sherry. Ginger notes. No taste of old sherry like varnish or polish, more just sherry fruit sweetness.
    • Finish
      Long sweet finish with prominent PX sherry notes. A classic sherry bomb.

  2. DimiIkon scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Tasting: May 2022
    • Nose
      Sweet red fruits, sun-ripened plums, spices and herbs, the alcohol is prominent.
      With water comes a mild sulfur tone but also a better balance of sweetness.
    • Taste
      A fantastic sweetness of fruits and plums, which, however, is hidden by the alcohol.
      With water: Spices and vanilla, sweetness of red berries, a fantastic nuttiness and dried fruits. A fine balance.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Sherry sweetness of fruits, plums, spices and dried fruits. An amazing fruit bomb!

  3. Lebenswassertester scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    definitely needs a few drops of water to open it up and soften the 61.8% that dominates the drop
    • Nose
      86 86
      sweet fruits, oranges, plums
      fresh herbs and a hint of cinnamon
      a pungent lacquer note?
    • Taste
      84 84
      very hot ( alcoholic )
      bitter
    • Finish
      86 86
      extremely dry, sharply alcoholic, bitter, fresh (menthol and citrus)
      kinda reminds me of brandy

      unfortunately not my case of drops
