Bladnoch 15 year old 55% Sherry Matured


Bladnoch 15yo 55% OB Sherry Butt ~2617

Colour: Gold.

Nose: relatively discrete at very first sniffs, with hints of sherry and hints of lemon but not much else. Let’s give it time… Right, more lemon indeed (pure lemon juice) as well as cut grass, but this one may need water. So, with water: it got grassier and, quite curiously, more austere. Hints of clams and kelp – sprinkled with lemon. Lemon grass (not lemongrass). Improves over time, getting nicely mineral and even ashy.

Mouth (neat): ‘pure sherried lemon’. Powerful but maybe a tad monodimensional. Vanilla and lemon fudges.

With water: wow, now it got excellent! Lemons of all kinds, crystallised, candied, squeezed, dried, barbecued – not!

Finish: long, clean, lemony and candied. Comments: we think this one really needs time + water, but then it gets really superb.

SGP:451 – 78 points (without water) and 87 points with water (yeah, really).
