Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 1990 SMWS 50.101

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of points

  1. Gaija did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    At only 30 bottles, this might well be the "rarest" (only in terms of bottles made, mind you) Bladnoch ever. What surprises me is that such a low outturn is hard to explain without considering that this was a shared cask. But ... as far as I know, SMWS don't share their cask, do they ? I guess the remaining options are :

    - A big part of the cask was involved in one of their recent blends / blended malts, like Exotic Cargo, although I really doubt it.

    - There was some leakage (or an accident while manipulating the cask or the bottles, that led to a significant loss of whisky).

    If anyone has some input on this, that'd be great ! :)

    Notes von der SMWS Website: https://www.smws.com/tantric-meditation

    "An intriguing delightful nose; rich, earthy and slightly sweet followed by plenty of dark fruits soaked in crème de cassis, like in a raspberry and cherry trifle with custard and grated dark chocolate and toasted flaked almonds sprinkled on top. Surprisingly lively to taste neat, a tropical fruit platter with nuts and berries with the slightly tangy juicy finish of sour apple tea. A drop of water and what a difference, ‘opening up’,’ awakening’ and ‘a pure delight’; luminous honeyed floral orange blossom lush with bergamot and balanced with cedar, rose and peach flower - we almost forgot to taste it! Entertaining –fruity, sweet and spicy all in perfect harmony."
