    A quick note made on 30-05-2015

    Sherry notes, rich flavors, notes of honey, lovely sherry honey like notes playing on the tongue.

    The best Blair I ever tasted so far :-)

  3. magic_slim scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A whisky with two faces. One is tasty, fruity with honey. The other consists of wood and dust.
    • Nose
      Intensive and mild, mature and balanced. Tropic wood, marble cake and ripe oranges. Very pleasant.
    • Taste
      Wow! Very elegant with honey and a strong fruityness, caramel and orange cake. Also quite some wood, slightly bitter and dusty.
    • Finish
      Long with sweet honey and caramel lingering on. More and more wood, ginger and dustyness is coming up.

  4. harry scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    It seems that DTC has managed to bottle this cask on the perfect age and the perfect alcohol strength. Nevertheless this bottling is too boring to be one of the top malts from Blair Athol.
    • Nose
      spicy, malt, soil, a hint of old wood, maybe cardboard and grass, caramel
    • Taste
      malt, crispy, ginger, wooden notes, full-bodied and robust
    • Finish
      old dry wood, malt, ginger, very long and a little bit afhesive one the tongue, good dryness
