Whisky Reviews for Blair Athol 1998 ANHA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.46 points

  1. malthead-1984 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful citrus fresh, perfect for a summer day on the terrace, enjoy a lemon mung feeling with a light dryness. The start is neat and gives a pleasant chili catch on the tongue

  2. Helgo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The whisky is very light. I did not believe it was a first fill bourbon cask. The nose is really fantastic and I could spend a lot of time with that. With water it opens and pleasant citrus notes come to light. Little wood and a pleasant finish. We recommend.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A good, nice whisky, but the right kick is missing.
    • Nose
      Nice ex-bourbon nose. Vanilla, bright fruits, canned pineapple, oak and a slightly grassy note. So far so good.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and very strong from the alcohol, sparkling, fruity.
    • Finish
      The sweetness remains, a little vanilla and then a little dusty oak is added, the mouth slightly dried out, becoming bitter.

  4. tamriel did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This whisky was in a refill bourbon cask
     (Hogshead #2770) for 12 years and got finished in a first fill bourbon cask for 15 months.
