Antique Lions Of Whisky Blair Athol 1988 28-Year-Old

Antique Lions Of Whisky Blair Athol 1988 28-Year-Old



A single cask 1988 vintage distilled at the Blair Athol distillery and release as part of the spectacular Antique Lions Of Whisky series.

Blair Athol in the eastern highlands is one of Diageo’s blending workhorse distilleries and has long been a part of Bell’s. Highly sought as a single malt, it is celebrated when matured in an ex-sherry cask. (The blending-bound spirit usually matures in ex-bourbon casks.)

Fruity and creamy, this expression was matured for 28 years before it was bottled in 2016.

A very special release of whisky that created quite a stir when they were released in Europe earlier this year, the ‘Birds’ series is the first release from Antique Lions Of Spirit. The indie bottler was formed by Jens Drewitz of Germany’s Sansibar alongside Italian whisky merchants Max Righi (Silver Seal) and Diego Sandrin (Whisky Antique).

This release is a homage to the Moon Import bottlings prominent in Europe in the ‘90s and ‘00s. Often beautifully stylised, this homage series has some of the best packaging we’ve ever seen.

The whiskies have been selected to have an ‘old world European’ style, so expect them to be soft, elegant and fruity with fantastic poise.

There are less than 300 bottles of each of the expressions in this first Antique Lions Of Whisky ‘The Birds’ and even less of complete sets. The Oak Barrel will be tasting the entire set of the whiskies at an event Tuesday 17 October. Details here.

Un-chill filtered and with no added colouring.
