Bladnoch 8 Years Old 2006 FF Bourbon Whiskybroker

What they say:

Distilled 19/12/2006 and matured for a full 8 years in a first fill bourbon barrel before bottling at 57.1% ABV cask strength.


What I say:

Another Bladnoch, this time, 8 years old and definitely matured in a first fill bourbon barrel, presented at cask strength


18ct gold (7/20), slow, medium-sized tears leave medium legs


Grassy hay and woody stems, a little crystalline menthol, bran, cereal barley, sweetness of honey and pollen, wildflower meadows, fruity appl & pear, quite green/fresh fruits, dusty and floury, tonnes of vanilla, coconut soap and sandalwood, oily and perfumed.


Smooth, rich vanilla essence with a fruity apple/apple pie, golden syrup, cereal barley flour, grassy/hay, slightly plastic and solventy, icing/frosting and pure icing sugar, just a tickle of spice


Medium short, sweet cereal, grass and honey with a little clarified butter


Very good, simple but pleasant. Enough oak cask and spirit characters to keep it lively, young and fresh.

Score: 84/100

Don’t take my word for it:
