Blair Athol 2002 14 Year Old Prevenance (Douglas Laing) Review

Blair Athol 2002 14 Year Old Prevenance (Douglas Laing) Back in 2016 as part of my Douglas Laing and Co Fellows membership I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to write the tasting notes that go on the bottle and this was for a 2002 14 year old Blair Athol.

I was over the moon at being given this chance, although i still somehow managed to avoid posting my notes here even though i thought i had done that already, and when i was sent the original sample i knew straight away it was my style of dram.

The whisky really worked for me with floral notes, light and fruity, hints of sponge and figs and floral gums, peanut brittle and a touch of spice.

Of course having a bottle with my name on it meant i had to buy a bottle, or two, but when i realised it was also from October 2002, the same month my daughter was born, i had to get a few more.

This was a bottling of 379 bottles and i cant find anywhere with it still in stock.

Thanks to Douglas Laing for this opportunity.
