  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    N- Well aged maltiness with rich oak honey, mixed berries dark chocolate with sour tinge and full of ester. Profound seasoned bourbon oak nuances with pure goodness of malt and oat beverages. Broad herbs and floral side of spectrum that lays well on the top notes, hot stones with hidden curry leaves with paprika and some aji. (94/23)

    P- Pursing with furious oak that gives a nice spicy mouth coat, dried flower notes and roasted nuts. Delicious honey, vanilla frosted oat crackers. (91/22)

    F- Long and warming, curious umami with tiny pinch of salts that usually from a good sign from a well aged and rich cask. Chewy, dried apricot with chili pepper. Herb-y oak staying for long time. (93/23)

    B/B- 93/23 A luxury breakfast dram.

    Weighted Rate- 91pt

    A divine ensemble of heavenly treats as apple pie baked beside rhubarb crumble with a thick biscuit base. Sweet aromas of floral perfume wafted from a soft leather handbag and combined with the alluring spice of cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise. Seemingly heaven contained quite a collection of antique furniture, the smell of which resembled a cooperage with its own built in humidor including the putty around the glass windows. The honeyed delights of sweet muscat dessert wine fused with sticky maple syrup and crystalised ginger on an apricot danish. Water softened the wood and sweet spice, although we did rather prefer it without.

    N: Yes yes, we have some dad murmurs because of the flowers [freesias] and porridge, hessian, marzipan and sweet hay. Barley spirit all the way.

    T: Slightly oily, honeyed and floral. Gratitude to the cask for its sterling efforts. The first journey malt of the day with slightly different variations every sip.

    F: Lots more soft-scented flower petals during a long finish. Firm notes on Bach’s rescue remedy, one honey Locket and soft pokey aniseed chocolate. At the death - sweet, honeyed/candy barley porridge.

    C: SMWS’s notes are darn good on this one. The Foz “Bladnoch is one of the least shouty whisky’s”. There’s no mystery to this malt. There are some layers to it or you can simply take this for an ‘honest John’ - whisky well matured in refills. A well trodden story. Happy.
