Tasting Note:

A superlative example of Blair Athol, which retains all of its distinctive rich, nutty-spicy character, from very fine ex-bodega casks. A real winter warmer, with plenty of lively fruit and spice to cut through its thick, sweet nature and reveal its true complexity. The colour of rose-hip syrup, with bronze and magenta lights. On the nose it is vinous, and drying. Intensely sweet with a savoury backbone. Hints of toffee and caramel continue, with brûlée topping and baked bananas. Medium to full bodied, with an oily, rich texture. The palate is smooth, sweet and warming; fruity too. Much more savoury than the nose, with barrel char, spicy oak and liquorice. Water smoothly lifts the sweetness, with bitter-sweet fruit, oak and sweet pepper. The finish is sweet, fragrant and spicy, with fresh mint, hints of forest floor and charred oak.
