Bladnoch is not a high profile distillery and I therefore approached this bottling with no preconceptions.

I tasted without adding water as it comes in at 43%.

It has a delicious citrus and marmalade aroma and I found myself nosing this for a full 10 minutes before diving in. I was rewarded when I did with a full flavour of honey and more rich marmalade (like my grandma used to make) with the malt playing a supporting role in the background before a gentle spicy note kicked in at the end. The spicy finish was smooth long and satisfying.

I hear that the new owner is doing wonders with this distillery and I have a bottle of 16 year old sheep label to try. If the new offerings are anywhere near the standard of this flora and fauna bottle they will be onto a winner.

A real cracker.
