Insider knowledge: Blair Athol 21 Year Old 1990 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Blair Athol 21 Year Old 1990 - Old Malt Cask (Douglas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Cherry pie hot from the oven, over-ripe fruits, sultanas and vanilla.
