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.
Established in 1798, the Blair Athol Distillery is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland and is the signature malt of the Bell's blend and the distillery is the "spiritual home" of Bell's.
This Flora and Fauna release is one of the few official bottlings ever produced from Blair Athol. The Flora & Fauna series initially consisted of 26 different Scotch Single Malts to highlight the diversity of Scotland's whisky regions.
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.
