Blair Athol Distillery stands at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands in the picturesque town of Pitlochry, Perthshire. Set in open moorland south of the town, in the foothills of the Grampian mountains, Blair Athol’s ancient source of water – the Allt Dour – flows through the grounds from the slopes of Ben Vrackie, contributing to the whisky’s, mellow quality and smooth finish.
This Flora and Fauna release has bags of character courtesy of good sherry maturation which impart onto it richness and spice. At the forefront of the palate is a beautiful nutty almondy flavour which also contributes to a soft texture. Blair Athol works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water. The creamy subtlety of a vanilla cheesecake provides the perfect base line to the melody of Blair Athol’s flavours.
