From the water of the Allt Dour burn comes a whisky with a mellow deep-toned aroma, a strong fruity flavour and a smooth finish – an irreplaceable contributor to the Bell's Blend, one of the most popular blended whiskies in the UK.

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.

Region A little-known Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Appearance Polished mahogany.
Body Medium to full bodied, but not cloying.
Nose Muscat grapes and Madeira wine, brimstone in the background, even tar. Dried apricots in the foreground, and treacle toffee.
Palate Rich and mouth-filling, with a good balance.
Finish A curious sweetness is introduced at the end, after the acidity and dryish finish has passed.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

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.
