Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 06-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.85 points

  1. barryfox915 scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Pale yellow.
    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.

    Vanilla and malt aroma, pear, apple, orange zest and dry hay. Vanilla

    sweet taste, cinnamon, pepper, eucalyptus, anise, malt, apple jam and

    almonds. Rather short, spicy and sweet end.

    This is amazing stuff for 6yo and really promises good things for the future.
    • Nose
      Very malty with a citrus tang. I can't get over how consistent the drams
      have been. Maybe its been the absence of weird finishes. Vanilla notes
      come through after a few seconds as the initial spiritiness goes away.
      Old fashioned custard powder. Custard cream biscuits.
    • Taste
      The initial hit is a little hot, but it quickly resolves into a lovely
      play between the malt and the vanillins. A bit unrefined at this age,
      but delicious nonetheless.
    • Finish
      A little unstable. Creates little hotspots that jump around, but ultimately the custardy vanilla wins through.
