SMWS 50.65 (Bladnoch 25 yo 1990/2015)

2015, SMWS
Single malt - Lowlands
Silvery yellow
52.5% ABV

Nose: Pineapples, orange juice, strawberries, peaches, vanilla, lemon zest, hints of papayas. With water, sweeter, yoghurt, more vanilla, hints of mint. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens slightly, volatile, slightly gritty. 
Tasting:  Sour . Peaches, lemon juice, pineapples, limes, vanilla, hints of mangoes. With water, yoghurt, vanilla, green tea. 
Finish: Short. Green tea, lemon juice, vanilla, limes. 


Tutti frutti whisky, full of esters. It's good stuff, like drinking a cocktail in a dram. Very tart. With water, it loosens up, becomes sweeter and much more gentle. I can never really pin down what Bladnoch tastes like, it's quite a varied whisky. This one is another different experience.


I like this.
