    [August, 2017]  I bought this bottle for 145 Euro in May, 2017.  Somehow I ignored Bladnoch for many years but since I discovered it five years ago I really do love this malt.  It owns a trademark fresh green apples flavour that reminds me of refreshing cider drinks.

    Same with this dram.  It has a nice fresh and fruity nose that shows this remarkable cider with a shot of lemon spike.  The mouthfeel is warming and coating with no distracting moments at all.  The taste offers a balanced mix of fruity, sugary and wooden/spicy flavours that is still very fresh after the 26 years in the cask.  The finish is of medium length and again surprisingly fresh.  Some water opens the nose and taste even further and releases a lot more aromas and flavours this way - so let it swim for your full pleasure!

    A really lovely dram on a summer night (that I surely will appreciate in January too)...

    [Quick note] Deserves more time and didn't have the best place in the line-up. Grassier than other Bladnoch 1990 and also sligthly funkier, with sour dough and white fish going along more traditionnal notes of lime, green leaves and sencha tea. Not necessarily my favourite Bladnoch 1990 but still a very fresh and good dram in its own right.
