Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 2009 WhB

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.60 points

  1. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The taste is just a notch too simple to get the 87pt mark.
    • Nose
      Dispite the 50ppm the peat is not really apparent at first nosing. (With some water that changes, water works quite well with this one.) Fresh farmy notes, wet sawdust and a faint fruityness. Sugared lemon.
    • Taste
      Fresh, a bit stingy. Simple. Some (not unpleasant) bitter notes, young tree bark. Sappy.
    • Finish
      Also quite fresh. Short but pleasant.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful, young bladnoch. Tasty to drink. Woe the 50ppm are, no idea, rather Ardmore level, or slightly below. But perhaps only a part of the malt was puked with 50ppm and a part was left unturned, that will probably explain it.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, slightly flowery, malty, some grass, some burned, light smoke. Soft with water, flowery and subtle peat notes.
    • Taste
      sweetish, slightly bitter, grassy, ​​quite strong, without water. Bitter-sweet with water, oak, light peat and vanilla
    • Finish
      quite long, burnt notes, some peat, still sweetish, flowery and towards the end there is a slightly tart plume of smoke.
