Insider knowledge: Blair Athol 11 Year Old 2002 - Hepburn's Choice (Langside) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Blair Athol 11 Year Old 2002 - Hepburn's Choice (Langside) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Blair Athol is a little gem of a distillery still waiting to be discovered. It generally produces a very rich and rewarding dram. However this offering from Hepburn's does not do the distillery any favours at all. It is very thin and malty with a distinct taste of sulphur. The cask selection was not good. For a true taste of Blair Athol look elsewhere. James Blackmore
