I’ve really looked forward to this one and it didn’t disappoint me, rather suprise me on the nose with all those outstanding notes.
The bladnoch 10 years old is bottled at 46.7% abv and has matured in ex-bourbon casks, it’s non-chill filtered and no color is added.
Strong vanilla followed by toffee sweetness , crisp green grapes, then a good dose of newly picked oranges and in the end a hint of sweet honey.
Very fresh and crisp. Pleasant on the nose without any alcohol burn coming through.
First creamy malty, wood, some black pepper, on the tongue some dryness then the sweetness of a orange combined with the citrus notes.
Medium-long malty at the end with some of the lingering down the throat
A very pleasant dram with clear and powerfull dose of orange which makes this dram stand
out against others I’ve had before. This is also one of my first encounters with Lowland whisky and
this makes me try and explore more of both Bladnoch whisky and Lowland whiskies
