Blair Athol 1997 vintage Highland single malt Scotch whisky. Matured in Refill Sherry Hogsheads and bottled 2013 by Gordon & MacPhail for the Connoisseurs Choice range.
Blair Athol Distillery was established in 1798 and with footprints in four centuries it is one of oldest working malt whisky distilleries in Scotland. Blair Athol Distillery is situated on the southern edge of Pitlochry in the heart of Scotland’s Highland whisky region and was on the main road and rail routes to whisky blenders Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Purchased by Arthur Bell & Sons in1933 and now promoted as the ‘home’ of Arthur Bell’s range of blended scotch whisky complete with distillery visitor centre and Blair Athol Distillery tours. Since a large percentage of Blair Athol’s malt whisky cascades into blends, Bell’s to be precise, the range of Blair Athol single malts is quite limited.
