Whisky Reviews for Blair Athol 15-year-old
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.48 points
- This is a fairly typical teenage sherry cask whisky. The only distinctive note is an off-putting hint of cheap perfume that carries from the attack through the mid-palate. Thankfully it is all but gone in the finish, and a little water seems to soften it even more. Overall a very lackluster entry to what is generally a very good to exceptional range.
- Soap / Perfume all The way. How can this have so high score?
- A really extreme palette, I understand why it's so divisive. Due to the soapy finish. But some drop of water help it.
Big sherry, raisin, prune, vanilla, honey and milk caramel.
Powerful. Phosphorous sherry. Dry oak. Apple and citruses. Pepper and ginger. Touch of soap.
Long, bittersweet, oaky, spicy.
- That soapy notes in the finish , I really don,t like it ... really liked the nose for starters but the palate gives away the first signs of the unpleasant surprise. Let it breath for a while just makes the palate worse.
Not balanced in anyway!
- "One of the hallowed Manager`s Drams - a single cask selected by Blair
Athol distillery manager Gordon Donoghue and bottled at cask strength in
December 1996. A very limited range and much sought after."
