  5. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    a 5th vintage, with a superb nose !!
    • Nose
      vanilla
      grassy,
      on apple-pear white fruits and some tangerine and lemon
      White chocolate
    • Taste
      immediate peppery sensation, strong which breaks with what the nose let us hope !!
      harsh, bitter,
      barley comes back, then a little vanilla and pear brandy
      a little dry grass
    • Finish
      bitterness that remains
      sensations a little attenuated,
      pity

    Nose: Vanilla cake. Cinnamon and a faint touch of clove. White chocolate. Custard pie. Melon, key lime and kiwi. Just the faintest touch of strawberry jam on spiced loaf. Sweet, soft and creamy. Very dessert-like.

    Palate: Great big arrival. Gorgeous. Apple and very clean oak. Slightly grassy and herbal. Vanilla ice cream eaten off a wooden spoon (remember those Dixie Cups of ice cream that came with the little wooden paddle spoon thing?). The crispy caramelized sugar of crème brûlée. Pudding. Spicier toward the back end, then a long warming finish.

    Thoughts: A great example of Bladnoch served up nekkid and natural.

    There's a code printed on the back of the label : 14/121

    It could mean that it was bottled on May 1st, 2014.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample in the BTC 2014. Hadn't recognised this one as a Bladnoch: The typical Lowlands notes are there but not dominant and the whiff of peat is a bit misleading. 87/88.
    • Nose
      Apple peel, straw, dried apricot, hazelnut, malt, white chocolate and... tuna?
    • Taste
      Dried apricot, caramel, yellow raisin, apple, milk chocolate, toffee, hazelnut, almond, fig and perhaps even a little peat.
    • Finish
      Milk chocolate, nougatine, hazelnut and still something slightly peaty. And again that odd touch of tuna.

  10. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A nice enough whisky, but not balanced enough to receive a higher score.
    • Nose
      Salty, but some vanilla as well. Also fruity with melon, underripe banana, grapefruit. An oaky quality with some wood shavings. Maybe some faint hay or straw.
    • Taste
      Coconut, lemon, citrus and grapefruit. Salty and peppery, fiery even. A bit spicy with koriander and cinnamon. With water the palate gets drier and oakier.
    • Finish
      Melon, than something sour. But then it develops into something quite nice with caramel and chocolate.
