Finn Thomson Blair Athol 9 Years Old 2013

59.4% abv

Vol- 70cl

Tasting Note Courtesy of Finn Thomson
This particular cask is a smaller than usual hogshead. Originally holding around 230 litres instead of the usual 250, maturation has been faster than expected allowing us to bottle this cask at just 9 years old. Fruit, nut and chocolate flavours combine – if a famous ‘Fruit and Nut’ chocolate bar could be converted into whisky, this would be it! There’s certainly a balance of flavours here. Raisin, hazelnut and chocolate notes all make an appearance. But don’t be lured into thinking this is an easy drinking beginners whisky. It is still complex and full of depth. Bottled at cask strength, there’s a real punch to this relatively young whisky. With a few drops of water some of those sweeter notes are indeed amplified and the chocolate notes morph into honey and caramelized sugar. For me, this whisky is one to take your time with, add water to taste and let the whisky sit in the glass for as long as you can resist.
