Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 1991 DL

  1. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Grassy and fruity nose (apples, citrus fruits etc), much like many Bladnoch bottlings of this kind of age, but with an extra 'off' note (it reminds me of the smell of the old gym hall at my school!). Seemingly no connection between the nose and the palate, where all the grassy/fruity nose disappear and a dry, acidic taste overwhelms things (perhaps a slight hint of shortbread in there somewhere). Dry and acidic finish too, although with a nice hint of Bladnoch 'grass' in there too. Drinkable, but nothing great. Doesn't even begin to compete with OBs of a similar age, and yet it's considerably more expensive!

  2. Hadrien scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    I put 90 because I was pleasantly surprised.
    • Nose
      Fruits and pretty tart notes. I would never have left on a bladnoch just in the nose.
    • Taste
      The mouth is rather focused on the biscuit, sensation of cupcakes and some dried fruits (apricots in particular). Quite surprising because we do not expect this after a fruity nose.
    • Finish
      Medium finish but rounds the aromas of the nose and mouth.
