Bladnoch 8 year old 46%


Bladnoch 8yo 46%

Color: Pale straw
Nose: Fresh and vibrant, lemon sherbet is prominent (turning to Refresher chews), slightest suggestion of baby vomit around the edges (turning to freshly baked sourdough loaves), hints of chamomile tea and Digestive biscuits on the end
Palate: There’s a round, oily sweetness up front that is soon replaced by an herbal note (similar to drinking honey-sweetened white tea), there’s also warm apricots in custard, a warm peper note and finally a tobacco element that transitions into the finish
Finish: The ongoing tobacco note, remaining pepper, concentrated honey, and then the palate suddenly dries out
Overall: A fantastic example of just how good Lowland whiskies can be.  It’s so good I’m not going to lessen its impact by calling it an ideal summer malt.  This expression has enough range to be enjoyed at any time of year.  Yes, peat freaks, even in the dead of winter!  Keep them coming, Mr Armstrong…
