Whisky Reviews for Bladnoch Adela
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.17 points
- Aroma: open, immediately bright dried fruit tones - prunes, dark raisins, dried apples and pears, dried forest sweet and sour berries. The second wave is sweetness, honeycombs, wax, candle paraffin, berry jam, somewhere remotely dry herbs and hay, wood bark, sour cream (!).
Taste: bright spices, red pepper, cinnamon, cloves, very sweet dried fruit compote, tart oak, astringent grape skin with seeds, berry jam.
Finish: medium length, rich, slightly astringent, the same, already slightly burnt berry jam, spices, figs, honeycomb, a little bitter zest at the very end.
Bottom line: a standard, well-tailored sherry whisky, without any special frills and shortcomings, of course not without individuality, mainly interesting paraffin-wax tones slip through the aroma.
- A very basic whisky, nothing much to talk about.
Fruity, sweet, dried fruit, red fruits, beautiful oak
Cherry, red fruit, molasses, spices beautiful oak
rather short, a bit of wood, light spice
- Total production of Adela was fewer than ten thousand bottles worldwide, all made in 2017 and 2018 - The way to tell the difference is 2017 bottles don't have the gold stripe on the label whereas 2018 bottles do.

"If you want a fancy gift for someone who's getting into whisky this is the one to go for. But for the seasoned maltster which is probably you I'd stick to the 12 year old. It's far more interesting."
- Blind tasting.
sulphur, blackberries, sacking
thinish - just a touch of sherry
- Sweet, red fruit, dirty sherry, mouldy wine cellar, full of spices, hints of sulphur, not elegant, the ABV is nice, full bodied, finish is all right and sweet, candy, strange malt. I do like this one, the taste and this dirty malty note. Bought a bottle for further examination
edit: 21.06. after some weeks in the opened bottle this one does get better.
