Blair Athol 12 Year Old Tasting Notes

Selim's tasting notes

Nose: Fruit syrup, honey and brown muscovado sugar. Apple, canned pears, peaches, apricots, and kiwis.

Palate: Barley syrup and preserved fruits. Muesli and cereal. Citrons, lemon zest, and chalk.

Finish: Vanilla, coffee liqueurs and creams.

Ed's review

Appearance: Natural colour, medium gold. Coats my glass, with beads that develop slowly.

Nose: Candied fruits and vanilla creme patisserie. Honeyed oats and freshly churned yellow butter. Waxy orange peel.

Palate: Medium to full mouthfeel. Plenty of fruit with apples, pears, and berries. Oats and vanilla. A light oak character.

Finish: Long finish that stays with me. Warming with sweet bright fruit. A touch of the coffee that Selim referenced. 

Overall: A really enjoyable dram - one to sit and enjoy on a relaxed evening in front of a good film.

About this Chapter 7 Whisky

Blair Athol is one of Diageo's workhorse distilleries. Much of its malt whisky ends up in Bell's blended scotch. It's a beautiful distillery built in 1798 in Pitlochry. It has a nutty character resulting from cloudy worts and short fermentation. Allowing controlled levels of solids coming across in the wash still adds a deep, rich meat loaf character.

The majority of Blair Athol casks destined for blending are ex-bourbon barrels. So, this release from Chapter 7 is a rare exception: a wine cask aged Blair Athol. The cask is likely a 2nd or 3rd fill, resulting in a complex dram rather than a dominant one.

Try this release with its sister bottling, Chapter 7 Blair Athol 12 bourbon cask.

What about taxes?

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
