Normally, Blair Athol casks are destined for blending in ex-bourbon barrels.
For this release Chapter 7 made an exception and aged the whisky in a wine cask. The cask is likely a 2nd or 3rd fill, resulting in a complex dram rather than a dominant one.
Blair Athol is part of the Monologue range of single cask, single malt Scotch whiskies, where no two casks are the same. Monologue whisky is a unique expression. It tells the story of the distillery that produced the whisky and the cask where it matured.
The Blair Athol distillery was built-in 1798, in the picturesque town of Pitlochry, where an ancient source of water – the Allt Dour – flows through the grounds contributing to the whisky’s, mellow character and smooth finish.
