A new 8 year old bottling from a single cask distilled December 2001. Unusually for Bladnoch this a lightly peated release.
If the previous cask was anything to go by this should be fabulous whiskey.
The first impression on the nose of this lightly peated whiskey is of a slight smokiness and then just a drop of peat coming through on the palate as it mingles subtley with the traditional lowland flavours.
Bladnoch Single Malt Whiskey
Brothers John and Thomas McClelland opened Bladnoch Distillery in 1817 on the northern bank of the River Bladnoch at Bladnoch Bridge just upstream from Wigtown in south west Scotland. Bladnoch Distillery is a small Lowlands single malt whiskey distillery equipped with two small stills. Having closed once again in 2009 it is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment with re-opening planned for late 2016. Bladnoch whiskey is available from independent bottlers including the Gordon & MacPhail the Old Malt Cask range from Hunter Laing.
