  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Uih - tastes older than 12 years. Has a lot of wood and depth. But he was taken out of the barrel just in time. If you look at intense wood flavors is a really great thing for a great price.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Nice nose with pear, lemon, some papaya and the typical sweetener bladnoch sweetness. In addition a lot of bitter wood and a good portion of herbs as well as creamy vanilla and milk with honey and nuts.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Powerful start without being too alcoholic. Lots of vanilla, cereals and honey. In addition, some walnut comes a lot of bitter wood. The fruit flavors continue to offer pear.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium long bitter finish. On the one hand a lot of sweetness with a little bit of citric acid. Add a little vanilla and fresh herbs. But the wood and bitter notes dominate more and more. The alcohol leaves a pleasant warmth.

    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%.
