Spirit of Ireland - Isle of Arran - Vintage Malts - Blackadder.
Published April 2001.
Blackadder Arran 1996 Raw Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.80%
7 Slightly gin-like. I have preferred bottlings that had more contribution from the wood. A touch of vanilla would round out the flavours.
Blackadder Ben Nevis 1984 Raw Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 61.20%
7 Extraordinarily red colour. The sweetness is almost overwhelming. The ultimate dessert whisky.
Blackadder Blairfindy 1980 Raw Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.60%
7 Those flavours in mid-palate afford a glimpse of a delicious malt but the wood is very dominating.
Blackadder Bowmore 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 63.30%
7 All the elements of Bowmore, and plenty of alcohol, but extra dimension.
Blackadder Caol Ila 1990
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.50%
8 Light in the middle, and delicate throughout, but lovely Islay flavours.
Blackadder Isle of Jura 1988
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.40%
6 Nose better than palate. A tired cask?
Blackadder Longmorn 1973
Single Malt - Scotland - 56.90%
7 This mahogany dram looks like a winter warmer, and that is how I would use it.
Blackadder Mortlach 1989
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.50%
8 Enjoyable, with an appropriate touch of earthy rawness, but not as statuesque as this elegant whisky can be.
Blackadder Old Man Of Hoy Single Orcadian Scotch Malt Whisky
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.00%
7 Weak in the middle. Lacks roundness.
Blackadder Rosebank 1992
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
7 Far from Rosebank at its best. Fiery.
