Bladnoch 26 y.o. malt mountains No. 5, 1990 – 2016, bourbon barrel, 48,6%
Comment: Sweet and mature nose in great balance.
Creme brulee wit loads of vanilla, almonds, white peach, kumquat,
gooseberry, grapefruit, pear, cider, kirschschnaps, elder, lime dashes,
kurkuma and what not – in parts like a Nahe Riesling Auslese and
marzipan cake and Haribo foam mice (sorry!). The palate is equally
rewarding, and the oak is not dominant. This mild baby surfs on vanilla
and fruit but has enough power to render great aromas. It reminds me of
white-chocolate-glazed fruits at county fairs. A dessert in a glass. And
at a price around 165.- Euro this is a real steal. Hell of a pick, Oli!
