Bottler: Bladnoch Forum
Region: Lowlands, Scotland
Special feature: Single Grain Whiskey ...
Grain whiskey does not always have to be a cheap extender for blends, some older grains are good and like to approach a malt.
Nose: Fresh and oily, olives and stale bread, beautiful cereal notes, breadcrumbs. A light sweetness spreads in the background, sweetened black tea that pulled too long.
Palate: sweet with honey notes and fresh citrus fruits, pastries on the tongue, lots of cereals and again a little olive oil.
Finish: long-lasting and fruity, with beautiful spices and oak notes.
Conclusion: A very pleasing and very good whiskey. Grain? Go then! I like him very much.
