Whisky Reviews for Blair Athol 1976 AD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.75 points

  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 99 bottles from cask 7315

    Founded in the late 1790’s, this distillery is situated, not in Blair Atholl (note the extra “l”), but some 25 miles south. This whole area around Pitlochry was once home to over 30 distilleries. Sadly only 3 are still in production. This extremely rare 30 year old American oak hogshead has produced only 99 bottles. 24 carat gold, it has a complex, but ever-changing nose. Initial old-fashioned furniture polish develops into dried apples, then roasted figs drizzled with honey. After another few minutes toasted almonds, pistachios and coconut join the mix. The addition of water brings a wonderful blackcurrant and elderflower nose (like a good Sancerre!). To taste, this is thick, waxy and oily with great texture and length. On the finish, more wax, dilute Ribena and Star Anise. An exceptional dram to contemplate long into the night.

  2. Sir Provenance scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    An excellent whisky that you will not get into your glass so fast in the face of the available bottles!
    • Nose
      Apples, honey and the coconut reach out to hand!
    • Taste
      Oily with a well-balanced mixture of the component of which you already caressed in the nose!
    • Finish
      Oily and long-lasting!
