    Spicy, nutty and chocolaty. An unknown insider tip?

    Good, balanced whisky
    • Nose
      89 89
      Wine aromas, grapefruit, apple, apricot, later some raisin, light alcohol. The wood note contained is therefore well subliminal. After 15 minutes, the dark berries come through nicely, such as sour cherries or blackberries. Toasted vanilla
    • Taste
      87 87
      Nice mouthfeel, creamy, light tannins, sherry and wine aromas accompany this. Well-balanced and beautifully matured.
    • Finish
      87 87
      good and medium length

  6. RJKrueger scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very balanced and interesting Bladnoch, in which the PX barrels do not push themselves too much into the foreground. Makes a lot of fun.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Lemon notes, apricots, plums, marzipan and yet amazingly fresh.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Fruity and distinctly sweet on the palate; with more dark fruits, spicy notes and some pepper. Nice complexity, although the PX barrel is rather reserved. With the second sip, the PX is more noticeable.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Pleasant, harmonious, middle to long finish without disturbing bitterness.

  7. Martinesk scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Heavy, rich whisky that you don't necessarily want to drink every day. In the right mood, however, he carries you through the entire evening.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fruity sweetness flows temptingly from the glass. The delicate campfire note from pouring quickly gives way to the rich sherry scent. Alcohol perfectly integrated.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Walnut, toasted nuts, nutmeg, heavy black wood.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Slowly builds to fill the mouth with spiciness and sweetness. Medium to long.

  8. HYTTTTTT scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    The cup became a bit poor after waking up.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Smell very sweet, toffee, candied fruit, red fruit, jam, grapes, a touch of spice, cloves, cinnamon.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The entrance is sweet, the fruit is stewed, there is some cream, and then comes out the comfortable spice, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, and at the same time the comfortable red fruit. It is a high concentration of dark chocolate. Full-bodied, medium-greasy, slightly thorny. After the cup is awake, the spice is more obvious, and the bitter bottom is increased.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is medium, with a slight bitterness of dark chocolate, followed by spice, red fruit, and some grapes slowly coming out at the back.

  9. MaltMatters scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Overall, the malt is deliciously interesting and, despite PX maturation, clearly brings the distillery character with it.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Beautiful, balanced nose of oak, must plum, pickled raisins, blackberries and vanilla. The vanilla always floats in the background. Chocolate notes are also added.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Texture is slightly oily, round and soft. Sweetness is pleasant and quickly transitions into chocolaty notes. Followed by coffee or rather mocha notes.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is drying, salivating and short to medium length.
