Tasting Notes

Blair Athol 26 Year Old Single Cask 6457 Tasting Notes

Appearance: Amber.

Nose: Gorgeous stewed apples. Very mead-like, with heather honey and a touch of peppermint. The mint feels more apparent with time. A little bit of mango and pineapple.

Palate: Moreish. Excellent show of older vanilla notes, toffee, mixed with orange marmalade and crab apple jelly. Quite herbal too, and just a touch of woodiness beginning to dominate. Then the fruits rush back in: stewed apples once again, and a touch of nutmeg.

Finish: Long, fruity, mouth-watering, with delightful - and not at all overpowering - warmth.
