2008 Signatory Vintage Blair Athol 12 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$220. 00 Bottle
Founded in 1798, purchased by the Guinness Group in 1985 and running four stills, Blair Athol is on the road to the flock of distilleries that's located further north. First bought to the attention of malt lovers via Diageo's Flora & Fauna series, it's known for its floral and fruity spirit. An ancient source of water called the Allt Dour (Gaelic for “the burn of the otter”) flows through the grounds of the distillery from the slopes of Ben Vrackie in the foothills of the Grampian mountains. This all-natural Signatory expression was placed in refill Hogsheads and finished in a fresh Sherry butt for 25 months, which accounts for the precocious colour. 54.3% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. 685 bottles.
