Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 1990 SS
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points
- Nice complex malt. With a twist just I like it. A Bladnoch like only they could produce. Ols style BN at their best.Wondering though what some more years in the barrel would have done with it
Spirity, grainy, grassy, porridge, cereals, yeast
Spirity, grainy, grassy, peppery, bubblegum, beer, fruity (citrus, lemons, limes)
Long, citrus, zesty
- A classy and delicately flowery malt boosted by a warm honeyed mouthfeel.
Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
Straightforward and soft at the same time. Very fragrant. Flowery and close to the cereal. Soft roasted, grounded, soaked malt. Quite some organics too. A bouquet left a bit to long in its vase and the stems of which have started to decay in the water. Sounds strange, but smells nice! Delicate and fragrant, actually.
Starts very flowery. Like chewing fresh rose petals. Unfolds on lots of nectar and honeydew. A rum-spooned Lowland, would that exist? Grows tastier, bolder and hotter at the same time. Really good.
Long and malty. Leaves your mouth fresh and clean.
- Pretty powerful and atypical. The addition of water brings no really positive element except a drop in the alcohol level. The nose, when it is on the fruity side, is very pleasant. Nice but bottled too young in my opinion.
Tasted in blind under the WDTS
Very surprising. Alcoholic from the beginning and evoking the spirit out of the still. A bit of peat, wildflowers, lots of anise, a hint of medicine and a sprig of brine. Then, over the aeration, a very fruity side develops. I will even say fruit paste with background, spices. This nose is "turning". Moving from one aspect to another in a loop. What I prefer is the fruity side
A crude cask for sure! Very powerful attack on the spirit side. Oily
long on anise
- Color: White wine
Nose: Very malty, on apple and pear and hints of cellar mold. Some spices in the background.
Palate: The malt dominates and the alcohol is very present. Some autumn fruits in the background.
A young whisky that does not say much.
Final: average on malt and spices.

- The nose is not very inviting, but the taste is all right. However it tastes like a young whisky, not 21 years old!
Spirity, like new make. Grainy, and grassy, herbal notes as well. Juniper?
Very aromatic but at the same time alcoholic. Punchy and spicy. No complexity at
Not that long, vermouth-like.
