Whisky Reviews for Blair Athol 1976 DL

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.33 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A powerful and deep scent promised a sweet sherry bomb, but no - the oak won, unfortunately squeezing the bulk of the ingredients into the backyard, which greatly impoverished the taste / finish; I would not say that the oak is too much, it is nice and pleasant, but apart from it there is not much left and it's slightly disappointing. And the fragrance is beautiful, yes, in style resembles Bruklady Black Art and his 21YO.
    • Nose
      Juicy, damp, very dense and saturated, at first it seems that the fortress is good for 60%, sherry tones in the most varied manifestations - dried fruits, raisins, dried apricots, dried up grapes, lots of prunes, dried apples, moist chernozem, mold, mushroom notes; wood of noble species, furniture varnish, wood treated with stain.
    • Taste
      Spicy, astringent, oak dominates, all sherry manifestations here on the periphery, shade and frame the bitter-knitting center of the composition, light peppery wave, furniture-lacquer notes, lemon zest.
    • Finish
      Heather-oak in equal measure, burnt biscuits, kvasnoe wort, dried fruits with sour, mostly prunes; lemon in tea, raisins, dry enough.
