Tasted in a Bladnoch lineup:
Pure Scot blend (75 pts.), Pure Scot Virgin Oak blend (73), New Make (70), Samsara (77), 10yo (76), 11yo (79), 14yo (82), 15yo Adela (79), 17yo red wine finish (77), 25yo Talia (83), 26yo Talia (84), 27yo Talia (82).
Some JD-like bourbon notes, and vanilla. Grassiness. The 25 and 26yo give much more on the nose than this one.
Reminds me of the 10 and 11yo, with this gentle pear-dominated taste. Some stale wood marks age, but otherwise this feels like it could be aged anything. Sure there is nothing wrong with it, but the price point is too optimistic.
Gooseberries and bourbon cask fruitiness, and a wisp of ethanol.
