Aroma: open, quite bright, at first light perfumery, vanilla, whipped cream, paraffin, honey honeycombs, fragrant hay, dry wood shavings and bark. Having breathed the oak, the lemon pie with vanilla, anise, sourness of lemon juice is added. I really liked the paraffin-plastic note, which I had never seen anywhere in the scent of whisky, which gives personality.
Taste: bright, slightly islandy, vanilla, fresh white bread, spices, a lot of citrus zest, herbal tea, light malt tones, buttery.
Finish: medium length, oily, directly envelops the oral cavity with a film, wax, zest, herbal notes, light perfume.
Bottom line: a great release from Bladnoch! I’m directly pleasantly surprised, I add to my piggy bank another initial whisky that should be in the bar and delight. A very cool and balanced aroma with its own zest, taste and finish, in principle, are standard for malt 10 years of aging in a bourbon barrel, but they absolutely fit into the big picture.
