"The nose is semi-closed up so Id advise adding a few drops of water to help coax out the scents. For this Bladnoch I detected some light smoke, rich honeycomb and sweet syrup. Theres also strong evidence of dried fruits, specifically blueberries and mangoes. I really liked the dried fruit smells it adds a level of richness and body to the nose. The berry theme continues on the palate which is dominated by ripe blueberries. Theres also purple grapes and green strawberries. At 48.1% ABV this whisky is very smooth and easy to drink. Theres some nice salt and pepper on the palate that adds just a bit of zing. This is a very berrylicious whisky almost to the point of being one dimensional. The finish is spicy with some blueberries and traces of dark chocolate. Theres also a good amount of black pepper and spices from the oak. Im glad I got to try this Bladnoch since theyre really not available regularly in the States." NY Loves Whiskey
