Connoisseurs Choice from Blair Athol 2008

Indulge in the exquisite craftsmanship of Gordon & MacPhail with their distinguished Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength range, presenting a rare single cask bottling of Blair Athol 2008. Distilled in 2008 and matured for 14 years, this exceptional Highland single malt whisky was bottled in 2023 straight from Cask 18601603.

Cask Details: This particular expression hails from a refill bourbon barrel, a departure from Blair Athol's more common maturation in sherry casks. Cask 18601603 yielded only 165 bottles, each bottled at a robust natural cask strength of 57.8% ABV, ensuring a full-bodied and intense flavour profile.

Profile: Known for its typically sherried character, this refill bourbon cask edition of Blair Athol promises a fascinating departure. Expect layers of vanilla, oak spice, and subtle sweetness from the bourbon cask, intertwining with Blair Athol's underlying malt complexity.

Experience: Dive into a sensory journey with Blair Athol 2008, where the boldness of cask strength amplifies its depth and character. This limited edition release offers whisky enthusiasts a rare glimpse into the versatility and craftsmanship of Blair Athol's spirit.
