Bladnoch 8 year old 55% Sherry Cask


Bladnoch 8yo Sherry Cask

Year 2001     Age 8yo     ABV 55%

Colour – Amber

Nose – Again very intense on the nose , this time with sherry notes , dried fruits and Christmas cake .Dry sherry , toffee brittle , there’s a bit of a nutty note to it .

Taste – Very strong on the palate , the sherry dominates , typical Christmas Cake sherried malt .

Finish – Long , dry and creamy toffee with roasted nuts .

Comments – Distilled 3rd March 2001 , Bottled 20th January 2010 from Sherry Butt no.28 . A strange Bladnoch , the sherry butt totally dominates but it’s not too bad a dram , i’ve had a lot worse sherry casked malts over the past year or so , saying that i prefer the Ex-Bourbon casked version .
