Blair Athol

Blair Athol

Blair Athol is a wonderful example of a malt whisky with a taste rounded by fruit. With a warm and rich taste along with clear undertones from the European oakwood-casks, previously used for storing sherry, wherein Blair Athol is stored. Ones thoughts are led to hints of cognac, but with that added complexity and a scotch touch.
The old distillery Blair Athol, which was established in 1798, lies just by the entryway into the Scottish Highlands in the picturesque town of Pitlochry in Perthshire. After being closed for a short time Blair Athol was revived in 1826 and after several expansions and restructurings, Blair Athol is still producing the remarkable pure malt whisky it is known for.
