This 21 Year Old Blair Athol Single Malt is a batch strength dram. This expression comes from a marriage of two ex-bourbon hogsheads, distilled in February 1997. Both of these casks were at a natural strength, and the resulting marriage is bottled at 60.2% abv. This is a yield of only 266 bottles, and this is the twelfth batch of this dram.
Discover apricot jam, Manuka honey, ginger, pepper, cinnamon and a subtle twist of oak on the nose. The palate is mouth coating, warming, and has a particular weight to it. You can expect notes of baked apple, dried fruit, apricot and pineapple. The finish combines these elements in an oily finish that goes down with a kick of spice. A controlled, delicately balanced success story.
