  1. Seele scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    N cake taste, cantaloupe, grass, sweet with a little freshness, not complicated but very comfortable, no alcohol stimulation
    T wine is relatively strong, with a little bitterness, grass, grapefruit peel, some tannins, a little wood soup, a little cinnamon, star anise.
    F long, pepper
    C I think there is a little problem with the state. The water level is still a little lower, which makes the wine a little loose and the taste is a bit woody. If in good condition, this wine should have a body of 92

    Unique and seductive style.
    • Nose
      Herbaceous nose of fern and dry grass. Floral on rose, heather and some geranium petals but without any lightness. Nutmeg coated with honey.
    • Taste
      Oily mouth on the rose, very lemony, nice sweetness with very present clove.
    • Finish
      Powerful finish with alcohol that goes up and intense on oily and dry grass. Slight acidity which transforms into an aromatic infusion with a light floral background, on lavender.

    A huge surprise! Probably one of the bladnoch bottling in my limited experiences.

    The nose started with very strong yellow flowers paring with unnoticeable roots and grasses,and then the peaches and passion fruits exploded. Very well integrated and bold.

    On the palate, I get very direct sugared peaches and sweet mango, some bitterness as if you bit into the mango peel. Little sourness to be noticed adding some vividness to the fruity flavor.

    Finish was long, aromatic, focusing on the floral side and some “bladnoch” lowland bitterness.

    In all, it is a superb tropical fruits bomb that parallels with some benriach 1970s bourbon barrel and 1976 Tomatin. I would also say this one is unique with some of the lowland’s traits.

    From Whiskyfun,

    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).

    Nose: sweet elements, nuts, ripe sherry.
    Taste: From the first sip you can feel the notes of chocolate and of course the notes of nuts. As soon as this whisky stays, sweet elements appear in the form of ripe sweet sherry / cherries. The taste is pretty well arranged.
    Rating: 91 | 100 Finish quite long sweetish. Very good position. Nicely composed. Well, just do not be happy that there was an opportunity to try it. Considering the availability of this bottle, I am sure that for the second time, unfortunately, it will not be possible.
