Perhaps the main ingredient in the succesful Bells Blended whisky, it is not common to see Blair Athol as a single malt.
So this fact makes this Duncan Taylor whisky even more interesting.
“I don't enjoy floral dry drams. This is one of them. Not bad anyway. I could live drinking this”
A release of 277 numbered bottles at natural cask strength
This dram has a white wine-like color.
Nose (88): average. honey, vanilla, citrus, spices, flowers.
Palate (88): powerful, oily. honey, floral, vanilla, spices, wood.
Finish (88): longer than average. honey, floral.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Blair Athol 22 Year Old 1989 - Rare Auld (Duncan Taylor) with 88 points over 100.
Well, although it isn’t my style ( and I enjoy Bells whisky ) it is a very decent dram. For those of you that love floral light whiskies.
