A 10 year old single malt from Bladnoch, joining the series of releases the distillery has made since being bought in 2015 and restarting production in 2017. It was matured in bourbon casks, helping to bolster the sweetness and bring balance to the flavour profile's spicy malt base.
Nose: Toasted barley, honey, a hint of fennel.
Palate: Waxy orange and chocolate chip cookie, with hints of clove and pepper underneath.
Finish: Ginger snaps and cinnamon rolls.
This whisky is very pleasant. Lighter than my normal dram, but quite complex and interesting. Will consider it seriously again.
