Nose
Grassy, dry.
Palate
Dry, grassy, leafy.
Finish
Dry, herbal (bay leaves?)
Comment
Slightly lean. Where is the fruity softness of Bladnoch?

Jim Murray

Nose
Subtle, silky and sweet; the maltiness is all-embracing and clean. Soft vanilla and coriander add depth.
Palate
Early dry oak suggests decay but powering, intense, if unsophisticated malt gives balance.
Finish
Vanilla, toffee and cocoa.
Comment
An uncomplicated but less exhausted, more even Bladnoch than Adelphi's, offering pleasing balance. Past its best, though.
