- Grand Bladnoch, that absolutely needs no water at all. The boys and girls from The Nectar sure know what they are doing. You can still find it for around 180 EUR.
Very aromatic nose on grapefruit, pineapple cubes, gooseberries and quinine. Some vanilla and candle wax. Young apples. Sugar cane. Very waxy. Textbook Bladnoch, which is always good news.
On the palate too, it is very waxy, almost fatty. Immediately piquant with a bitterness reminiscent of quinine, but not over the top. The fruit is mostly citrus and apples, but it turns quickly into a candy-like sweetness that I quite like. Towards the end, I even get a hint of salt. Surprising, but it does work beautifully.
The finish is long, very long. And quite zesty and spicy with a bittersweet death.
- Beautiful bourbon aged Bladnoch, fruity and a bit sweet initial and later a small influence of the wood which adds complexity. Also fresh grassy yellow fruits in a matured way. Medium aftertaste like custom to Lowlanders. If it wasn't 178€ a bottle, I'd buy one..
