  1. ovanpuyvelde scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    My very first Bladnoch ever and it definitely makes me want to taste more of this lesser known distillery! I just adore its very oily, buttery mouthfeel. Werther's Original caramel & cream candy in liquid form, me like!!! (for the Dutch people: "roomboterbabbelaar") I'm very happy that I was still able to secure a bottle in 2017 (thanks Ruben!). At its original release price of 85€, I definitely would have bought 3 bottles or so ;-)

    Tropical fruits, sweet, honey.
    Body is a little pungent, tastes of oranges and caramel come along as well.
    Nice dram.

    Bladnoch 21y 1991/2012, 52.9%, The Whiskyman for The Bonding Dram, bourbon barrel, 118 bottles
    Clean nose. Sweet and grassy. Hay and meadow (with buttercups and clovers). Butter and caramel (toffee). Cane sugar (something that seems to be a typical element in Bladnoch from this period). Some pineapple too. Canned. Or actually out of a can. In any case, an open look. Whatever, I can really enjoy this. A unique, refined style. On the taste I have that buttery and that grassy, ​​together with the creamy caramel. But also a lot of vanilla now. Vanilla fudge. Then more and more oak and grapefruit, creating a pleasant bitterness. Pepper and liquorice in terms of herbs. Bitter-sweet in balance. Medium finish on citrus, vanilla, candy sugar and juicy oak. Long doubted about the score, until I put another Bladnoch 1991 next to which I gave 86 points. This goes smoothly, especially the nose is a lot better. So clever selection. 88/100

    This was my first Bladnoch and I really liked it. The nose was floral, the taste was full and oily and the finish was drying, but not bitter. Excellent.

    Tasted a glass from Inge Lanckacker at the WFNN 2015.

    This Bladnoch is very much worth your while and I am
    not just saying this because I am one of the twenty names you can read on the
    back label. Available
    for 85 EUR at The Bonding Dram.
    • Nose
      The clean nose starts on candystore and cotton candy
      (cane sugar) and a wonderful combination of white and yellow fruit. Think pears
      on syrup and a slice of pineapple. Hints of nuts and butterscotch. Creamy.
    • Taste
      After a somwhat hesitant start, it opens up nicely on
      the palate. Again creamy and sweet with loads of vanilla. Very fruity on
      grapefruit and pineapple. The oak shines through. Some liquorice and a pinch of
      pepper. Nicely balanced.
    • Finish
      The medium long finish is very zesty and fades on
      vanilla and brown sugar.
