Ballantine's Finest. It starts off kinda watery but then some peat notes come in along with some oaky notes.

I would like to say that I like this very much and see good potential for this distillery. I also had the bourbon version and I think that is slightly better. For any Campbeltown fans, I recommend giving this a go.

Ellenstown 10. It's oily but dry. Is that possible? It kinda reminds me of a cross between Laga and Ardbeg.

Glenfarclas 105 cask strength

A bit too overpowering for me without water, but with water it's absolutely delicious:
hazelnut and figs and a long dry finish.

Those 20yo Bladnochs are a great whisky at a great price.

They recently sold a 23yo Single Cask for £125 a bottle. The previous 22 year old was less than half that. I heard a rumour that the 23yo was the last of the casks the distillery has from this era. I really should go looking for the info, but if this is the case i reckon it's worth it to grab with both hands any 20/21/22 year old Bladnoch one can find.

Well, the US doesn't get any OBs from Bladnoch. I got these through WhiskyBase. Truly a travesty that Bladnoch isn't well represented here.

I don't think they have distilled for about 5 years. Whatever the issues are at Bladnoch, be it financial, or rumoured infighting, it doesn't come across as a well run ship.

Aye, that is sad. Kinda reminds me of Springbank issues from around 1999-2000 just worse.
