yes richard it is a nice distillery, it has changed a lot over the years, it is at the end of a very nice waly through the town, (is robertsons stll their).on my first visit you had a taste of the malt, in later years it became a taste of bell, the atmosophere is good though, blackend trees and warehouses, trout in the stream as you cross the bridghe and knowlegable staff, again this is on my visit list in october, lots of good distilleries in that region, if you could cope you could do 4 in a day, blair athol, edradour, glenturret and aberfeldy, you would really have to rush though, better to do just 2 and enjoy.

I've tried to get that trip organised so many times for a one day rush around with friends but as i've done Glenturret so many times could lessen it to the 3. I wonder when i'll get to see a distillery again, hopefully in a years time, other than Glenturret when visiting the in-laws.

Just got back from Scotland. Will write in more detail at a later date but was able to get to Blair Athol, not a very good tour at all, very quick and at 4 not worth it!, nothing to spend the 3 voucher on they give you if you already collect whisky and very get you in and out tour. The next day we wandered around Glenturret and then onto Tullibardine which I can not say too many nice things about. The woman who showed us around was excellent and freindly in her delivery of the tour and facts. The 3 admision is all knocked off your purchases plus a free Tullibardine blenders malt glass! Lots of free whisky to try and an aamzing tour that both I and Old Faithful fully recommend though the distillery is very hard to find. Then onto Aberfeldy, filled up with a few whisky goodies and onto Edradour for a great free tour and free whisky to try. Wonderful one of a kind distillery and the cooling of the whisky is amazing as its outside and using the burn water. Very good guide again and lots of nice bottles in the shop as its nice owned by Signatory. Finsied with a drink at a real ale pub the Moulin and a trip around Bannockburn today on the way back. Kidneys still intact but we have raided many of the shops for some great whisky bargains and true whisky treats. :D


I'm being lazy so I've brought my Blair Athol distillery notes over :D

johnny, i noticed your coments in perthshire whisky tour bit.
perthshite has some pretty distilleries, blair athol being one of then, just of the A9 coming into pitlochry from the south, those large litchen covered warehouses and the pretty burn.

i have been on this tour but a number of years ago and at that time we had the malt to taste, i have ben again many times but will not pay for a tour when they are going to give a blend to taste, i think that this does nothing for the distillery although i cant fault the staff and the place its self.

the decision to give bells as a taster must be a brand image thing, i am not a big lover of blends as i have said in this forum before but i do like some, bells is one (so is black bottle) as it is quite smokey but i can try that in the pub, i can never hope to try blair athol in the pub unless that have a vast range of malts and not many do Neutral
