Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 2001
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.21 points
- Just too harsh, why always.
the alcohol is surprisingly well integrated, slightly malty, fermentation notes, beery, slightly musty, some vanilla. With water, the citrus notes are fresher, the musty disappears easily. There is a hint of peat in it.
pure almost not edible, a strong bitter note pervades this whisky. It does not get much better with water. The 9 years in the barrel have left a little too much bitterness.
The departure of the 9er is simply just tart, slightly tingling, hint of peat, bitter and astringent.
- Compared it to the sherry matured casks 280 and 282, and this one is clearly the best one of the three.
Citrus, toffee and vanilla. Peat indeed, but in a vegetal sense: moss-like, and even something like cactus. Very different from peated Islays or even Highlanders. Eventually also typical Lowlands notes like grass, grain cooky and hay. With water more of those notes as well as grapefruit and white pepper. Very nice nose, reminds me a lot of Littlemill.
More peat now: Dark chocolate. Lime, toffee, hay, orange, grapefruit and pepper.
Peat, dark chocolate, toffee, orange, lime, peat, straw, cooky and pepper.
- Surprisingly 'full' for its age.
