  6. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    I found this too sour and citrussy, at least for my liking.
    • Nose
      74 74
      The first impression is sour, and not that pleasant. It reminds me of the smell of old sweat socks. Then orange peel, kaki fruits geel fruit kaki fruits and young rum. Gets better. More red fruits follow, with red berry juice and fresh tangerine parts.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Sharp, earthy, and many citrus fruits, in particular oranges. Lemon juice, more lemon juice (it definitely needs water, although the strength is not that high). Lime skin, dry sand, lemon sweets and limoncello.
    • Finish
      81 81

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The nose is great, typical Lowlander. The rest is quite demanding. On the one hand nice that it was not a fruity vanilla bomb, but that's a rather bulky matter. Nevertheless, clearly identify as Bladnoch.
    • Nose
      Light fruits, grass, citrus, some vanilla and a slightly musty oak. In sum, a nice Lowlander nose.
    • Taste
      surprisingly strong, bulky, very dry, oak, citrus, almost bitter.
    • Finish
      Tart, oak and lots of citrus, grapefruit, bitterness. Much of it, like a whole handful of citrus peel.

    • Taste
      83 83
      Powerful. Vanilla, oak, pepper, waxy fruits and honey.

      with water:

      sweet, cereal, vanilla, and very strong plum. You think you have a plum brandy. I did not have that so far.
    • Taste
      82 82
      with water

      sweet, not aggressive, round. The alcohol is well integrated. Then something bitter on the tongue. Very easy to feel the oak. Here comes the plum again, though not as strong as in the nose. But you have the impression of drinking a whisky Obstler.
    • Finish
      82 82
      with water

      long finish. This sweet bitterness remains on the tongue. Feeling very little of the oak flavor. Astringent. A musty note to the end.


      In conclusion: tastes like licked on the bitter damp musty oak barrel in which previously plum brandy was in it.
