  1. Nezzer scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose
    Light malt notes with hints of cherry and marshmallow.

    Palate
    The first sip has a slight bite to it. Subsequent sips are smoother, but reveal a side of oakiness that fights with those cherry and marshmallow notes it had in the nose.

    With Water
    A few drops makes the palate more prominent.

    Finish
    A bit plain. To be more descriptive, hints of old marshmallow with slight bitter oak. Not much here though.

    What I Say
    It’s a decent dram for the experience. There is not much Bladnoch around and it’s good to taste a bit of history. The distillery was closed the same year this whisky was bottled (1993). It has been sold twice since then but so far owners have been unable to establish any consistency (production resumed from 2000 to 2013). Back to the bottle, I wonder if it was aged a bit too long. Maybe there wasn’t much flavor and it was kept in the cask with hopes of improving it with time. If that is the case it didn't work.
