    [April, 2017]  Surprisingly I found this little gem in my cellar while cleaning up - I do not remember where it came from (most probably a present by one of the whisky aficionados that from time to time step in).  So I open it tonight for curiosity...

    Still I find Bladnoch the best of all Lowland distilleries (including the closed/demolished ones).  It owns a very special, vibrant profile and produces malt of the "old style" - hopefully the new Australian owner keeps this quality alive...
    • Nose
      90 90
      The nose is tyical Bladnoch: barley sugary sweet with green fruits (apples, pears) and some summer floral aromas.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A very nice and quite complex body offers its profile in different layers - again sugary and fruity flavours contained by sound wooden notes that get just a little bitter in the end. But this is compensated by a delicious chocolatey flavour that pops up around the same time.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The arrival on the palate is sweet, smooth and mouth-coating. The finish is of medium length and sweet again. I like it...
