Blair Athol 1999 12-year-old Provenance

Bought – Nickolls & Perks, 17th September 2013

84.5/100 – Whisky Bible 2013
80.67/100 – Whiskybase (average from 3 member votes)

I was slightly surprised to find this version of Blair Athol in the Whisky Bible, thinking it was a bit obscure, but there it was at the bottom of page 56. This is my first bottle of ‘Provenance’ by Douglas Laing & Co. Apparently it has a “sherry butt” which Jim Murray doesn’t feel adds anything to the dram. Nevertheless 84.5/100 is a good score and I’d rather have a sherry butt than cottage cheese thighs any day! With no added colour,  non-chill filtered and 46% it has all the good things going for it.
