  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    This is near perfection in #Lowland whisky. Rich and soft, hints of bitters and grass, but so much body!
    • Nose
      93 93
      The nose is luscious stone fruit and sweets. Deep, like crazy good deep... Fruits and oil, white tea and grease. Wildflower honey and clover grass cuttings.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The palate is intense! Fruit city, machine oil and sweet grass clippings. honey and florals almost a briney note of salt. Hints of perfume come along in the end, with some coffee bitterness.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is very long. The honey rolls and oats come into green tea and grass and end up with soft wood spices and honeysuckle.

    A lovely old Bladnoch.
    • Nose
      Fresh mown grass. Vanilla, lemon notes. Fruity.
    • Taste
      Creamy and lovely sweetness. Lemon notes again. Fresh.
    • Finish
      Soft , long and a nice sweetness.

  6. WillemvdK scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Butter, vanilla, fudge, lemon zest. Tap sulfur. Cucumber and fresh grass. Flower petals, little potpourri. Mouth is deliciously sweet, full and creamy. Development is missing something, bit flat. Beautiful finish.
