  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A Highlander could be so powerful, multi-layered and interesting - 2-3 drops of water in the dram and enough time in the glass elicit many details from him - but he wants to be conquered slowly
    • Nose
      87 87
      Nuts, candied pineapple, dusty, earthy spice sacks, lovage, soup spices, seared celery - with a little ventilation it changes its character and reveals its barrel base, waxy sherry notes, the musty veil that had previously existed before it receded, heavy fermented plum mash, armagnac
    • Taste
      88 88
      Peppery plum wine, dark grapes, leather, raisins - full-bodied, yet a creamy and waxy texture with a small chilli tip, strong red fruits - soft oak on the back, which becomes clearer with the addition of a little waeer
    • Finish
      87 87
      a long sherry-plum finish

  3. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Great malt with very successful aging, because the Bladnoch character comes through intensively.
    • Nose
      A distinctly waxy nose that frames the fruit basket, which is presented here with mild, floral and yet expressively presented aromas - is that the dram's alcohol talking? ;)
    • Taste
      Soft, oily, Irish-looking, with a slightly perfumed-metallic note. But not in a way that I didn't like it. Reminds me of the Loch Lomond Organic 17yo, the Littlemill for the poor :)
    • Finish
      Lively citrus, pineapple and melon aromas linger for a long time without any biting tingling or similar. Very well-rounded!

  4. Boletus did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Despite 20 years of maturation, this malt is still amazingly lively and powerful and convinces with its combination of creamy and sparkling moments in the waxy-creamy mouthfeel and predominant red fruit. The oak is a little boisterous and resinous fresh at times, lacking a bit of the woody spice to really shine, but still this is a nice malt that I really like.
    • Nose
      Lots of strawberries and raspberries bring a red fruity beginning, ''Crimson Red'' grapes, the delicately toasted and slightly resinous oak whips through the action again and again with a small aggressive undertone, there is a bit of vanilla in the air, orange zest, a subtle quarky impression, together with a sour cherry aroma, it has something of a ''fruit dwarf'' with cherry flavor, chocolate cake with morello cherries and cream, ripe plums, tart red gooseberries, the grassy barley brandy has been pushed far into the background by the barrel
    • Taste
      Strawberry cream roulade melts on the tongue, the mouthfeel is creamy and waxy at the same time, ''PEZ'' raspberry dragees make it tingle, tangerine, a sweet and sour mixture of red grapes and red gooseberries, a tangy cream with vanilla and Prosecco Rosé, now the grassy barley also dares to emerge more clearly and presents one or the other stain, milk chocolate, a subtle mineral aftertaste can be seen behind the resinous hints of the relatively fresh-looking mild oak
    • Finish
      Medium length, clear vanilla introduces the finale, the oak briefly tries to hammer in its resinous brake and tannin spores, but ultimately leaves only a few toasty scratches, apricots, plums, slightly cherry, a hint of cocoa with crunchy sweets in the direction of 'Russian bread' ', barley malt with a minimal grassy flash, wild strawberries and raspberries with cream let it fade away, finally a shadow of gooseberries lingers

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A nice Bladnoch, that
    is closer to Rosebank of St Magdalene than it is to the softer Lowlanders such
    as Auchentoshan or Glenkinchie. Around 100 EUR.
    • Nose
      Well, after the first
      whiff, I do not exactly think of Lowland. This is sturdy stuff, closer to
      Highland in style if you ask me. Fatty nose on white and yellow fruit, potato
      skins, baking butter, candy floss and a hint of Turkish Delight. Well spiced.
      Adding water makes it sweeter and reminds me of creamy candy.
    • Taste
      Oily and spicy on the
      palate. Pears, pineapple and a little lime. The peel, actually. Very waxy
      indeed. Wonderful oak, just sharp enough to counter the creaminess. Fine
      balance. Liquorice and white pepper. Quinine, too. Does not need water, but let
      me add a few drops. That makes it creamier still, but the fruit suffers a tad.
    • Finish
      Nice, long finish on
      licquorice and quinine. Mildly drying.
