  1. Gloin scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The smell has taken me immediately, fresh and ripe at the same time, no alcoholic sharpness, very intense scent of whisky from the glass. In the mouth, the whisky shows its full strength, which was still somewhat hidden in the nose, the finish is heavy on the palate and leaves the impression of age and maturity. blind tasting Blind, I estimated the whisky to be 20 years old.
    • Nose
      It begins immediately very aromatic with the scent of green apples, lemons, sweet vanilla, on everything falls the dark shade of spicy oak, the fresh fruits are slowly dissipating, now earthy notes are added, wet wood, in the background could even be a trace of smoke.
    • Taste
      Soft oily body and a mighty onset, the whisky is hot on the tongue, apple juice, slightly bitter apple peel, a hint of sorrel, delicate bitterness, but no chocolate, in the second sip of sour, lemon, bitter jam
    • Finish
      Clear oak, Nordic, bitter beer, spice of the oak, roasted aromas, the tart notes remain on the palate for a long time, a delicate reminder of the apples from the nose and mouth.

  2. Noface83 scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    Nose: it does have some light smoke (but more like smoke from scorched grass, hay and heather), lots of malt and yeasty notes (quite youthful), lemon, some vanilla and a very light hint of wet oak. I find the young age quite successful and pleasing.
    Taste: wow has the power and is full. A small Kuhstallnote (almost like the Ledaig smoke), sparkling alcohol, again a lot of barley malt and citrus flavors, it comes a little toffee but also many bitter herbs. It also remains astringent bitter with delicate smoke and some malt sweetness. Only the bitter herbal note stays longer in the mouth. The other flavors are gone quickly.
    As Bladnoch almost a very typical Lowlands with lots of citrus and grass notes (here but burnt grass). Has a lot to offer despite its low age but can not hide his youth completely.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    no high-flyer, but he has a nice fresh nose and a slightly peaty profile
    • Nose
      The alcohol is surprisingly well integrated, but naturally young, slightly malty, fermented notes, beery, oatmeal. Light, fresh citrus notes, something diffuse peaty to smell, very discreet and not really smoky, rather burnt grass. With water clear vanilla notes come to light, a little toffee, some citrus and I really like it.
    • Taste
      pure very alcoholic, slightly malty, sweetish. With water, it becomes bitter, almost a little too dry and does not lose its alcoholic power so completely, the peat notes are noticeable in the end.
    • Finish
      on leaving a surprisingly clear peat note, a bit bitter, somehow grassy
