Bottled in 2014, cask reference 7279.
Nose: Quite a bit of citrus and orange peel, bitter vanilla. More towards baked apples with water and hints of liquorice.
Palate: Malt and liquorice (or “sisselrot”, common polypody, or rather the edible root of it which has a vegetal liquoricy taste).
Comments: Something of a surprise, not a typical Blair Athol at all, but very nice, even so.
Tasted at Trondheim Whiskyfestival 2016.
Tasted at Casc in Aberdeen.
Nose: Hunny, leather, oak, mealy apples and apricot jam.
Palate: Apricot jam with oak flavour.
Comments: Nice enough, but not very exciting.
Distilled July 1991, bottled October 2013. Tasted at Casc in Aberdeen.
Nose: Oaky banana, oak, green banana peel, vanilla and green wood.
Palate: New American oak, vanilla, hint of liquorice.
Comments: Confirms the “old grain is kinda nice” rule. Not terribly exciting, but very nice.
