  3. fritzbrause scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Not a typical Blair Athol, or at least what you would expect from that distillery and especially at that age. Its smooth, its round, its well balanced. The nose is superb. The palate is light and fresh .. the aromas from the cognac finish are very good hidden in the whisky .. it makes that one completely exceptional and unique. I think there was some risk to try a congnac finish, but it was a good decision!

  4. Cicero did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a cognac cask finish is rather rare, but very interesting
    • Nose
      a touch of smoke (if at all), grapes and raisins (could be the Cognac Cask), tangerine / orange, mulled wine spices
    • Taste
      light smoke (if any), sprouts, oak, sweet, salivation is stimulated, mouth-filling, despite only a few added drops of water, the alcohol is very well involved. Even pure, the alcohol does not really stand out
