Nose: Alcoolic, sweet, peaty, floral, fragrant, with
some hemp rope flavours.
Taste: Peaty, dry, bitter, smoky, slightly mineral,
sugary, floral on charcoal, on vanilla and cream fudge. Diluted, it becomes
slightly fruity. The finish is medium, bitter-sweet, peaty, with a hint of
gentian and sugary notes.
General Impression: Amongst the three very young
Bladnoch distilled by the new owners, I have found this one as the most
pleasant, with the peatiness giving additional complexity to this whisky. The
general character between these 3 bottles is quite similar. With a few years of
extra maturation, these Bladnoch might be dangerously drinkable.
