  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Very very strange whisky actually. Its character changes continuously, with sometimes attractive sweet aroma's and taste, while at other moments a very strange combination of cucumber and cement appears.
    Let's take the score to an average, which leaves it to 83 points, although I actually would not prefer drinking this one again. Okay, but one is clearly enough.
    • Nose
      Grassy, floral, strong alcohol, also some sweet aroma's. Caramel, and then some strange smell coming in, cucumber, and cement. After some while, this strange smell disappears and sweetness is back, with some honey and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Strong, pepper, again sometimes this cucumber, caramel. Also some strange sweet taste. Lot's of alcohol.
    • Finish
      Lot's of alcohol still, pepper, pungent and warming. Then at some moments this cucumber and cement returns, and then it changes to honey.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Grass, malt sugar, cooky, lime peel, caramel, vanilla and cucumber. 
    • Taste
      Malt, straw, vanilla sugar, caramel, pepper, cooky and lime. When adding water, the latter really turns mojito-style. Don't let it breathe for too long, as then a really weird cucumber-like style takes over.
    • Finish
      Malt, caramel, straw, grass, rhubarb and pepper.

    Citrus, lemon, biscuits and a touch of leather. A character of it's own.

  9. I_SPEY scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Lemon, vanilla, oak, malt and fruit!. With a few drops of water more body and an extra nice touch of citrus!

    Taste: Creamy, oilyish, with notes of oak, coriander and a nice soft touch of pepper!

    Finish: pleasantly long, sweet and finishing with that exceptionally nice taste: that oilyishy, buttery end!

    Wow!

  10. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A 'hot and spicy' Bladnoch. Not bad though.
    • Nose
      Very grassy. Spring flowers. Hay and Heather. Also lots of cereal and grainy. Herbal notes.
    • Taste
      Quite spirity (60,6%!) Lots of citrus fruit of lemon and lime. Sweet vanilla of course as well. Sandalwood.
    • Finish
      Long. liquorice. Ginger and some peppery spices.
