What they say:

A deliciously sherried single malt from the Lowlands, this Bladnoch was distilled from lightly peated malt – unusual for the region. It was aged for 11 years in a single first-fill sherry hogshead before bottling at 55%abv

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fruity, fresh nose. Lovely sherry notes coming through, with hints of apple, hazelnut and spice. Soft smoke.

Palate: A mix of soft smoke and cigar leaves. Lovely tobacco notes. Hints of hazelnut, cocoa butter and Oloroso.
