Blair Athol

Blair Athol 12 Year Old Flora & Fauna Single Malt Whisky, 70cl

A full, rich and spicy 12-year-old single malt whisky. Slightly dry on the finish with lots of sherry notes and a slight hint of minty herbal notes. An interesting whisky with an unusual sweet aftertaste.

Serving Suggestion: Blair Athol works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a drop of water to better hold it's sweetness.

"The nose is mellow and sherried, with brittle toffee. Sweet and fragrant. Relatively rich on the palate, with malt, raisins, sultanas and sherry. The finish is lengthy, elegant and slowly drying."

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.85

"The obvious sherry ageing really suits Blair Athol. It is a malt that matures quickly, and this is very sophisticated for its age. A lovely whisky."

Michael Jackson 2000, Whisky Magazine, Issue 11

"The nose is rich and full, with orange and citrus fruit. The palate, too, is big and chunky, with some tannin and spice in the mix, and water, parma violet notes."

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.85


Polished mahogany.


Medium to full-bodied, but not cloying.


Muscat grapes and Madeira wine, brimstone in the background, even tar. Dried apricots in the foreground, and treacle toffee.


Rich and mouth-filling, with a good balance.


A curious sweetness is introduced at the end after the acidity and dryish finish has passed.
