- Blair Atholl is part of Diageo's Flora & Fauna range. It's a Highland Malt and mainly matured in ex-bourbon refills and some ex-sherry casks.
The Flora and Fauna single malt series were launched in 1992 by the then owner, United Distillers. The idea of the launch was to illustrate the differences in Scottish malt whisky regions. A total of 26 expressions were released. Initially the range was bottled at 43% but later some expressions were released as Cask Strength. Diageo has since taken over ownership of United Distillers and thus, the Flora and Fauna range. Diageo discontinued the series in 2010.
The range includes single malt bottlings from the following distilleries: Aberfeldy, Auchroisk, Aultmore, Balmenach, Bladnoch, Blair Athol, Royal Brackla, Coal Ila, Clynelish, Craigellachie, Daluaine, Dufftown, Glendullan, Glen Elgin, Glenlossie, Glen Spey, Inchgower, Linkwood, Mannochmore, Mortlach, Pittyvaich, Rosebank, Teaninich, Speyburn, Strathmill.
Nose: Nutty with sherried notes. Gentle peat. Crisp. Palate: Good body, malty and sweet. Citrus and the peels thereof. Finish: Peat smoke, syrup. Good sweetness, bittersweet, drying.
