Nose: Light, floral, with some tobacco leaves, some
grassy notes and anis seeds. Diluted, it becomes more pleasant, with additional
fudge and vanilla flavours.
Taste: Alcoholic, sweet, sugary, slightly winey,
on grapes, a hint of smoke, some toffee and anis seeds. Diluted, it becomes
cleaner, malty and more on vanilla. The finish is short, sweet-sugary, on grapes
and with a clean maltiness.
General Impression: A young and promising
Bladnoch: clean, fresh, malty, and without the roughness associated with very
young whiskies. Needs some water to open up.
