    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring, beguiling, very sweet fruit notes and floral aromas flow out of my glass. The alcohol content (46%) is perfectly integrated and allows long breaths just above the edge of the glass. Fresh cut tropical fruits are immediately dominant. Mangos, kiwis, apricots, pineapples, a hint of unripe bananas and floral notes cement the fruity floral foundation. The sweet fruit flavors are covered with soft vanilla / caramel and blossom honey notes. Green tea with jasmine flowers, herbs and a hint of wax follow. An incredibly beautiful contrast are the fine oak wood notes, which are always perceptible, but at no time push the fruity-fresh aromas into the background. The nose immediately captivates me as it depicts a very harmonious symbiosis of flowery fruit notes and a remarkably long maturation period of over a quarter of a century.
    • Taste
      Wonderfully oily, almost creamy-buttery, the Bladnoch floods my taste buds. At the tip of the tongue a tender tingling (pepper / ginger) develops, at the same time a heavy sweetness stands out. Again, I register abundant floral notes, tropical fruits (especially mango, pineapple and papaya), a lot of vanilla, a hint of wax, light pastry notes and blossom honey. The more sweet-spicy oak notes get a slightly dry impact, but they look very elegant and ripe. Green tea with jasmine flowers, herbs and a splash of lime juice complete the complex taste profile. The alcohol is perfectly integrated again, I add no water.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and spicy and warm. At the beginning of the finish, a very delicate pepperiness flashes for the last time before the sugar-sweet, tropical fruits, blossom honey, a hint of wax and a lot of vanilla can be highlighted again. Spicy-dry oak notes, herbs and an aftertaste of milk chocolate let the malt finish. On the palate remains a slight dryness.

    Something restrained initially in the nose and on the palate, which takes a lot of time and heat, then comes the fruit and pastry sounding on tour. Drops off to the rear, but remains very consistent.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Butter cake, lemon butter cream, almond oil, jasmine tea, honey-glaced ripe pineapple, beeswax, a hint of gooseberry and lychee, and above all the scent of old waxed wooden planks in a sunlit country house.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Ripe lemons, pear-and-pineapple tartlets floating in oil, a glass of limoncello and a portion of candied ginger.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Drying gently sour, a grapefruit lemon note stays pretty long, and finally the gooseberry and pineapple blend returns.

    Another value for money dram @ 61 Monarchy, abundances of tropical fruits

  6. Gaija scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A good aeration time in the bottle proves this one is yet another perfect example of the typical Bladnoch 1990 style, one that I can't imagine anyone disliking honestly, even moreso during a hot summer. Long live Bladnoch !
    • Nose
      Typical. Melon, green apple, lemon, cucumber, bergamot, honeysuckle or maybe lily of the valley. Hand cream, slight laundry side (super typical), grated carrots. White flowers again and again, mint green tea (also super typical). A white wine-like minerality, more on slate than on limestone though. Very light honey, and even some sage after a while. So, typical. Fruity, flowery, vegetal, slightly mineral and above all very fresh and spontaneous in its delivery.
    • Taste
      Perfect, in the nose's prolongation. The slate-like minerality lifts a wave of flowers, cucumber, melon, lime and white grapes. Kiwi, even more flowers, rice vinegar. Great aromatic stability while we chew, this is really delivering. Light texture.
    • Finish
      Quite long for 46%, with peppermint, shiso, eucalyptus, lime, and rice vinegar still. White pepper that gives a little fresh bite before the next sip.

  7. DerDennis! scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very complex, sweet / spicy smell, whose aromas are constantly in motion and always make new discoveries possible. I could go on forever!
    In the taste less fruity, but pleasantly spicy and tart-sweet, with grains and woody notes.
    In the finish pleasant woody flavors with a subtle honey sweetness. Unfortunately he lets up a bit too fast here.
    • Nose
      92 92
      sweet, tropical fruits, pineapple, malt, oatmeal cookies with honey, nutmeg, white pepper, clove, pickled cucumber, pine needles, orange peel, white chocolate, toasty aromas ... Coffee beans, very light hairspray note, which then changes towards mint, cinnamon
    • Taste
      90 90
      sweet, light spicy, oily, pepper, wild honey, eucalyptus, tannins, oranges, nutty, dry, coffee, caramel, orange peel, licorice, spicy mint, cereals, strong dark chocolate
    • Finish
      88 88
      medium to long, orange peel, tannins and tart / spicy honey, some mint tea
