Blair Atholl is part of Diageo's Flora & Fauna range. It's a Highland Malt and mainly matured in ex-bourbon refills and some ex-sherry casks.

Caramel, coffee cream and nuts are there on the nose, there's rich fruit and citrus, leather too. A complex nose.

The palate is chunky and rich fruit, with spice, maybe cinnamon, and creamy milk chocolate struggling to make an appearance, the spice warming and encouraging, some tannin and honey mixing pleasantly.

Having just poured another which is slightly colder, there is more of a floral and fruityness to it. Still that spice.

The finish is long fruity and spiced numbness.

When you buy this whisky it will become one of your favourates make no mistake.
