Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 09-year-old

    Classic, fresh Bladnoch nose. Plenty of grassy and zesty (citrus) notes alongside honey, icing sugar, a hint of hazelnut coffee, fresh flowers and the faintest whiff of smoke. A drop of water brought forward some lovely additional creamy notes. Fantastic stuff! I really like this profile: a perfect antidote to the heavier profiles that dominate much of the whisky world these days (e.g. peat, sherry etc). Crisp and fresh on the palate, with plenty of citrusy zip and spicy pepper, but with a smooth creamy backdrop helping to balance things out. Slightly short finish, perhaps the only time when the relative youth of the dram was revealed. With a slightly longer and more complex finish, this could easily reach 90pts for me. As it stands, this is classic Bladnoch, bottled at a great strength and for a fair price!
