Bladnoch 13 yo 1975 (55.0%, G&M for Intertrade, 218 bottles) Colour: gold. Nose: we aren’t that far but the floral and sort of vegetal notes are here right from the start. It’s probably a little headier actually, with quite some musk and old roses. Then it changes directions, getting more on vanilla and light toffee just before we get some rather huge notes of lead pencil. Very entertaining but much less citrusy than expected. Mouth: rounder, sweeter but just as oily as the 1958 at first sipping, with a striking lemon leading the pack this time. There’s also quite some crystallized citron, lemon pie, all sorts of herbal teas, green tea, sage… gets grassier with time, bold, powerful… Yet, the balance is absolutely perfect. Perfect compactness. Finish: very long, still extremely lemony and grassy but in a perfect way. A lemony monster on the palate, excellent again. 89 points (and thanks, Bert).
