Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 1993 GM

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.91 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Delicate, fruity, sweet nose. Pretty "irish" as a profile. Peaches, lychee, it smells like summer. In the mouth, ooh, too bright! Final on the fruits, with a little burned too. With water the alcoholic integration is ... less bad.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. tribe scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The bladi was a bit woody and mint with light tea notes. Light fruits but the wood was too tart for me

  3. Ostap scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    It was too small to be properly assessed, but enough not to regret it too much. Why did he keep it in the barrel for so long? Faceless, indistinct whisky.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Significantly restrained aroma, mineral (not sea profile, but earthy, herbaceous, floral), vanilla, allspice, raisins in glaze (candy "Sea stones"), honey on honeycombs, apricot sour, raspberry leaves. Absolutely not alcoholic and very quiet aroma.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Very peppery, frankly dry and severe, to bitterness.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Pepper, dry, crispy, crunchy, white cherries, orange, raisins. It sounds good, even for a long time.

  5. ctu scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A nice fruity and floral Bladnoch, especially the nose.
    • Nose
      Floral. Exotic fruits, malt, citruses and honeyed nut.
    • Taste
      Ripe fruits with honey, citruses, oak and pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium, spicy.

  6. alex..w..fan scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Light mint and flowers but with a strong bias in the bitter-pepper tone, and aftertaste on the same topic .. breathing in the nose improved and the body added) ... very good and well balanced!
