This is a 23 year expression from little known Lowland distillery Bladnoch bottled at 44.4% ABV.
Nose: Very playdough like in that it’s salty with fresh pasta notes.
Palate: Subtle all around – a little sweet with some vanilla, malt, hay, and muted fruits.
Finish: Again quite subtle here – slight hay with malt.
Rating: 83/100 – Like most Lowlands for me, a little plain/bland but generally unoffensive.
Value for the money: I think this one retailed for around $200 or so. I would value it closer to $80.
