    Color: pretty dark for an ex-bourbon. Most similar to the color of a dessert wine.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Herb-aromatic. Clear bergamot, wood, pear drops, tart nut very in the foreground (or partitions of a walnut), behind it still strong black tea with a little milk.
    • Taste
      90 90
      The alcohol is very well integrated. On the palate, it is more of a typical representative of an ex-bourbon, but a very good one. The most obvious are the pear drops. Wood and bergamot are also heavy and a slightly bitter walnut. Medium spicy. No sign of youth. Blind, I would probably have given him at least 18 years, given the also clear wood note.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium-dry, medium to long, pear drops, black tea, aromatic wood. For a brief moment, a slightly misplaced note flashes on, something like the swollen skin of a light bunch of grapes just before spitting out. Very long remains old wood.

      Conclusion: I have long wanted an old juicy ex-Bourbon. Many of the sherry bombs are in circulation at the moment, some of them are in my bar and in the meantime I wave me off, if there would be another (not smoky) sherry monster. With this bladnoch I finally closed a gap. Formally 12 years on it, but you would never have come up with it. Especially the finish is like a 25-year-old.
      PS. The ideal drinking strength for me here is around 53-54%.
