  1. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Classic Bladnoch profile on the nose, very similar to other 20-22yo OBs I've tried: plenty of freshly cut grass and hay alongside vanilla, tablet, banana foam sweets, citrus fruits (limes and lemons) and just a touch of cardboard and nail varnish remover. It could only take a couple of drops of water due to the low-ish bottling strength (43%), and it didn't fundamentally change the profile. This lowland style is really growing on me, but I understand it isn't to everyone's taste. Fresh and grassy on the palate too, with hints of chilli and cracked black pepper keeping things lively. Medium-length finish, with a touch of cream at the very end. Given the current prices being charged for 20+ year old whisky, this is good value.

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Eggs, pepper, vanilla, spices, carton and very malty - grains.
    • Taste
      Malty - grains, some fruits, vanilla and later some pickle.

      Overall a bit flat dram.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, grains and some caramel.

  6. p4blo scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not my favourite profile, but nice despite the alcohol %.
    • Nose
      Notes of grass and hay mixed with pears, apples, vanilla and a bit of cardboard paper.
    • Taste
      Vanilla and fruity sweetness accompanied by a bit of pepper and ginger. Feels a bit too watered down though.
    • Finish
      Quite short with the spiciness of pepper and chilli mixed with smooth oakiness.

    Compared this one head-to-head with the official 20-year-old Bladnoch (ID 21484) and I have a slight preference for this one. Especially the nose is more intense.
    • Nose
      Lime, pear, apple juice, grass, straw, vanilla, banana candy, malt sugar, marzipan, honey and caramel. Pretty intense, it seems of higher ABV than it actually is.
    • Taste
      Pear, vanilla, caramel, hay, malt sugar, banana and a little white pepper.
    • Finish
      Caramel, pear, hay, vanilla, banana and white pepper. Also a slight offnote like cardboard in the long run.
