    I don't know if it's because I like IB Lowlanders these days, or because I just had a Clynelish before that might have underlined the typicity of this dram, or because it just suits a hot summer day perfectly, but damn, I'm impressed. I really had a great time with this dram, which felt coherent, natural and above all very refreshing. I tried to score it 88 but by checking some of my others 88 I definitely enjoyed this one more. "Sorry".
    • Nose
      Green apple liqueur strikes first, something laundry-like then (but not in a bad way mind you), like some lavender scent. Then BAM, a huge note settles down and dominate the whole thing for the rest : mint green tea. Like this doesn't smell like mint green tea, this is mint green tea. It's rare to find such realism in an aroma. Some watermelon and parget dust, some lime indeed and even some carambola, some elderberry and even some very light goat cheese if you want me to find something else but all that is very secondary behind this nose's main theme : an extremely pleasant, mint-flavoured green tea. I love it.
    • Taste
      Same ballpark, but less dominated by tea. Green tea, blue acidic sweets, chemical green apple, that laundry taste again (which is actually very refreshing and intriguing, not bad at all), and generally speaking that kind of "mineral fruitiness" that can be found in some excellent naked Clynelish or even Springbank. Candied violet, rosewater and mentos, ether and citrus fruit, slate and cucumber. Great evolution, great presence, doesn't feel underproofed at all. I love it.
    • Finish
      Already more bitter and vegetal, as expected. Very ginger-forward, with some green tea again, some lime skin, and some cucumber again. Barley-ish and some limestone on the end.

    A typical Bladnoch, never know when you are dealing with a Lowland or a Highland.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Leaving aside the anise of which I am not a fan at all, this Bladnoch has a beautiful fruit well integrated and consistent. Pastis fans will love it.
    • Nose
      Grapes, lots of vanilla, and suddenly BAM! The nose is submerged by star anise. A wisp of Mirabelle slips through the back.
    • Taste
      A lot of fruits. White grape, yellow apple, kumquat. Some spices tingle.
    • Finish
      Average. Sweet aniseed sweet is needed, flanked by spicy lemon syrup.
