  1. CST1986 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A nice, fresh, sweet and sour summer dram with exactly the right amount of oak influence to make it a complex and substantial Lowlander. Even better with water. I really like it.
    • Nose
      Without water: Sweet and sour, rich and creamy. Cream slice with lemon glaze. Lemonade, lemon balm, vanilla and a very light, slightly bitter maltiness in the background. Somewhat ozonic. Very fresh, bittersweet nose.
      With water: Gets creamier and even more likeable. Lemon icecream, basil, sponge cake, white chocolate. The bitterness gets milder.
    • Taste
      Without water: The malt seems more mature on the palate than on the nose. Even if it's a very fresh and sweet and creamy whisky, the tart and bitter tannins from the oak serve as backbone to the wonderful development of this Bladnoch. Intense attack, slender, compact mouthfeel enriched by the oak. The interplay between the oak and the malt's sourness generates complexity. Long development and finish.
      With water: Great. It stays intense and powerful. The bitterness develops to many complex flavours adding to the sweet freshness. Fruit salad with orange zest, lemon juice, raisins, almonds and some basil. A pinch of sea salt, sweet malt. Very fresh, sweet and pleasant.
    • Finish
      Very long, sweet and slightly bitter with accents of chlorophyll.

    I have to note it scratches the 90 pts.
