    Nose is delicious. fruit bouquet, like pineapple, strawberry, orange and apple with vanilla pudding, cream and some sweet spices and nuts. You notice some sharpness too.

    Same as nose, full flavored, rich and full of fruity and creamy vanilla flavors, but still a bit sharp and young.

    Body is quite thin.

    Finish is a bit of a let down for me. Quite a bitter spirity flavor, dry and not much linger and development. But gets better with more air and after opening the bottle.

    Makes me curious to try a more mature Bladnoch, since this is my first experience with this distillery.

    Drinking it with orange pure chocolate is a match made in heaven.Also weird that one day i rate it 78 or 79 and another day it could be 88 or 89. So rated it somewhere in between.

    Give it time despite its young age. It delivers!
    • Nose
      Initial dark fruits with minty tea-like components. Sherry comes trough with hint of camphor. Moist wood. Sherry again. Mineral and rubbery notes. Give it time to breathe.
    • Taste
      W/o water: Strong arrival. Mouth-coating oakiness.

      With water: Creamy semi-dry nutty sweet arrival. Fades quickly into astringent dryness overlaying cooked fruits. Sudden arrival of oak and slight pleasant bitterness.
    • Finish
      The strong arrival surprisingly fades more quickly than expected, leaving a dry and silky mouthfeel.

  7. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A deep, intense dram. Delicious.
    • Nose
      Dark fruit, strong sherry and plum. The alcohol is noticeable. Behind it a little ginger, cinnamon and oak. Caramel in the background, chocolaty-sweet.
    • Taste
      Without water: oily, strong sherry, chocolate and caramel. Then again spicy ginger and oak. The whole thing becomes pleasant Volmilchschokolade with orange.

      With water: Chocolate and orange are stronger, raisins join. The peppery ginger leaves behind an association of licorice and malt sugar.
    • Finish
      Mitellang with orange, chocolate, malt and oak.
