Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 06-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.23 points

  1. barryfox915 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Gold-old gold.
    Nose: Smooth, round, slightly winey, light, floral, on
    sherry. With time, it becomes richer and more complex.
    Taste: Smoky, clean,
    malty, light, on fresh rubber, toffee and sugar. The finish is medium, bitter,
    rubbery, clean and malty.
    General Impression: A promising Bladnoch, but the
    fresh rubber notes are a bit to strong to my taste.

  2. Collector57 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is pretty good, particularly for a 6yo, but I have to wonder why you would want to overwhelm the delicate character of Bladnoch with a load of sherry?
    • Nose
      The sherry is very apparent but doesn't overwhelm the oak. The trademark lemon may be just there in the background
    • Taste
      Oak, sherry, a bit nutty
    • Finish
      Medium with oak. A bit bitter

  3. Willie JJ scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Like the bourbon matured dram this lacks a bit of balance, just because
    of its youth I think, but it has some wonderful sensations along the way
    and there are moments of greatness. I could play with this for ages.
    • Nose
      The gristy malt is not having all its own way here. There's mixed peel
      there that takes it on and never quite wins but definitely keeps it
      busy. Light chocolate and Fino sherry.
    • Taste
      Wow real zing from the word go. Develops into a fruit and nut chocolate
      bar followed by a sip of cream sherry and a mouthful of Space Dust.
    • Finish
      The popping of the Space dust gradually subsides until there is just a warm rich chocolatey coating on the tongue. Delicious.
