      dry nutty sherry, spicy oak, cocoa, plum, like sucking on a plum or apricot pit. Reminds me of Glenfarclas.

  2. Dirk scored this whisky 83 points Super Administrator

    When first opening this bottle I had some very distinct smell of malted barely and yeasty notes. Luckily they are gone as it really put me of. It became a nice enough whisky but missing the typical Bladnoch aspect.
    • Nose
      Cigar box, tobacco leaves and some gun powder. A faint hint of grass and lemon.
    • Taste
      Caramel, thick oily, honey. Creamy, banana, pears, gunpowder.
    • Finish
      Peppery, hot, midlong on caramel, cream. Feels overpowered by the sherry.

  3. edwinbeuving scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Good dirty sherry, creamy vanilla, yellow fruit, red fruit, sweetish spicy, butter, little kinky.
    Taste: Gunpowder, creamy sherry, dirty, some sulphur, red fruit, vanilla, a bit later also yellow fruit, full-bodied, distillery character is a bit dormant. Yet I love this kind of whisky!
    Finish: Sweet, creamy, red fruit, drying. Medium to long.
    Score: 85
