  1. hs305 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    [March, 2017]  When it comes to Lowland whiskies I do not understand this current hype about Rosebank.  No doubt, Rosebank is a very nice dram but I think it is a little bit one-dimensional.  Contrary to this Bladnoch is complex and - most important to me - has got this 'old distillation flavour' (not sure where it comes from)...

    ...and this bottling got both, a very nice complex aromas profile and this lovely touch of old style produced whisky.  Yes, the apple aromas are quite dominant and delicious (esp. in the nose), but after opening the bottle there are some unpleasant woody notes too. Fortunately theses bitter notes were completely gone after some time and it all became a very nice, rounded lowland profile. 

    I really like it (but leave the opened bottle alone for two to three days before re-tasting it).  I hope the new Australian owner can keep this delicious profile alive...

    [April, 2017] I just had a re-taste and fully confirm my 89 points score - in doubt I would rather go for an even higher rating than a lower one. Really superb stuff to quaff...

    Plenty of citrus & cream on the nose, also fatter on the palate than I was expecting, this is a sweet one mainly on apple with a little lemon sherbet.
    An easy drinking Lowland whisky.
