  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Oh I like this one. Back in the day Lowlands had a distinct style and many expressions. It’s a shame that the lowlands has lost its way, and I would love to see this style be represented in modern whisky. Maybe Bladnoch is the last true Lowlander. Even then, Bladnoch has seen many changes too.
    • Nose
      Light and classic old Lowland style. That is to say a little Irish. Garden shed, grass, honey and some nice fruits. Apple, kiwi, green fruits. Pretty flawless.
    • Taste
      Honey, dunnage, mint, kiwi, melon, apple. Garden shed, old grass. Crisp delivery but good full mouthfeel. Great abv and age.
    • Finish
      Honey and a little heathery here. More green fruits, mint, wood oils, dunnage, hessian. Great style. I’m no St Mag expert, but this is lovely.

    Today I'm trying this Linlithgow that was offered through a virtual session put on by a local festival. Let's see how it tastes.

    Nose immediately starts with lots of tropical fruits, then wild grasses, honey, some wet earth, and perhaps a light touch of spice.

    Palate continues with tropical fruit, a bit of grass, honey, becoming oily, vanilla appearing.

    Finish carries the tropical fruits and honey, then vanilla icing on a cinnamon bun, lingering oily mouthfeel.
