BLAIR ATHOL 30 ans 1988 30th Anniversary S.V 54,7%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 55238

Quantity limited to 1 bottle(s) by client.

Originally created in 1798 under the name Aldour, in reference to the neighbouring river Alt Dour, it was not until 1825 that this distillery was renamed Blair Athol. After being mothballed in 1932, production began again in 1949. In 1973, it doubled its production capacity, increasing the number of stills from two to four. This sherry cask bottling beautifully reproduces the intrinsically malty character for which this Highland distillery in Perthshire is so renowned and also reveals remarkable balance. Equally generous and complex, no holds are barred in expressing an unusual personality that has no fear of roaming into new territorities. The notable salinity of its flavour profile and the nobility of its mouthfeel pay testament to this.

Profile: the rich initial nose is at once chocolatey, liquorice and spicy (nutmeg). Allowed to breathe, it becomes apricoty and honeyed (lime blossom). Heady florals (jasmine, iris) then gradually fill the air. The complex attack is particularly exuberant (passion fruit, lichee). Continuing on, the mid-palate adds persimmon, a fine layer of liquorice and noble spices (ginger, saffron). The long finish has an incredibly delicate texture, highlighting its floral (rose petal), fruity (wild strawberry) and roasted (coffee) character. The very end of the palate is even more fruity (mandarin, mango). Single Cask no. 6847 – Refill Sherry Butt

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : coppery orange.
  • Nose : intense, rich. Combining dark chocolate, bitter orange, liquorice and nutmeg, the first nose reveals lots of power and at the same time huge elegance. Allowed to breathe, it becomes apricoty and honeyed (lime blossom). There is almost perfect balance between the malted barley and the sherry. Note the appearance of stunning salty notes. Gradually, dried fruit (walnut, date, almond) and heady florals (jasmine, iris) fill the air.
  • Palate : complex, noble. The particularly exuberant (passion fruit, lichee) and oxidative (ivy, brandied cherries) attack literally transcends the aromatic palette. Continuing on flawlessly, the mid-palate adds persimmon, guava, a fine layer of liquorice and noble spices (fresh ginger, clove, saffron). Like the nose, very slender, it develops into dried fruit. The wood's sophistication is highlighted by notes of polish (beeswax, royal jelly, emery cloth).
  • Overall : long, silky. The incredibly delicate mouthfeel reveals a floral (rose petal), luscious (rosemary), fruity (wild strawberry) and roasted (coffee, tobacco) start to the finish. Next, fresh fruits (mandarin, apricot, mango) bring lots of vivacity to a very generous end to the palate. If we had to use just one word to describe the retronasal olfaction, it would undoubtedly be 'distinguished'. Later, the empty glass releases incredibly pure chocolate aromas.

Merchant

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
