Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch 2001

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points

  1. Toffie76 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nice, but still a little too Dominated by the distillate
    • Nose
      Pear, green apples, ginger, bay leaf, pepper. More leaning notes of sherry round off the angles. Walnuts, grapes, a trace of leather. Olive oil.
    • Taste
      Always a bit rough, but the alcohol seems to fit better. We arrive at something almost balanced. Development is more homogeneous and less brutal. A lot of fresh fruit, ginger and wood. A lot of pear always. Still a little young.
    • Finish
      A fine and peppery bitterness finishes the mouth

  2. Ivynor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A nice surprise. I tasted a version in 350ml, but the same barrel. Sherry gets the upper hand on the green and young side of lowland and returns to something quite greedy.
    • Nose
      First impression of power, on the sherry and a well-marked lowlander side. Dried fruits (almonds), sugar, wood (fairly active cask), followed by hay, apple cider, fresh green apple
    • Taste
      We find the nose, with better integrated alcohol. Texture rather oily, sweet, on almond, wood, vanilla. Always hay and apple back.
    • Finish
      A wiser finish, more and more marked by the barrel (made quite new) with a little pepper.

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Very close to the cask 172/2001, but less unbalanced and less peppery.
    • Nose
      Pear syrup, some notes of wet tobacco.
    • Taste
      Pear, a hint of ginger, and a lot of pepper.
    • Finish
      Average. Slight bitter astringency that persists.
