- Fascinating blance with orange and other fruit peels. Everlasting with spices, pepper and still a mild and straight spirit flavour. Bladnoch remains an underrated distillery. Let‘s see what will come after the re-opening.
- SMWS tasting note:
The nose, with the oiled wood of new church pews, exuded peacefulness and earned reverence – it also had dried papaya and mango, marzipan, lemon curd, sherbet and candied angelica. The palate was chewy and satisfying, with spritzy and zesty elements (orange and lemon jellies, tropical fruits), spiced pear and the sweetness of white chocolate and French Fancies. The reduced nose continued the citric theme – lemon sponge-cake, chocolate limes and a painter with a cigarette in one hand and a margarita in the other. The palate was juicy and rewarding, combining tangy fruits and bitter lemon with cola cubes, pear and chocolate.
To alleviate the pain of decorating.
