Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet with toasted nuts, dried fruits and spices. Some light oaky tones and bracken. Water makes it slightly more fragrant: sweet hay, flowers, more spice.
Palate: A sweet yet savoury start. Caramelised fruit and nut. A good, quite chewy mid-palate but all very nicely underplayed.
Finish: Soft, hay-like.
Comment: A cracking Bladnoch. Let's have more like this.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Nutty and spicy. Dominated but not drowned in sherry. Cherries in chocolate. Dried fruit. Kumquat.
Palate: Sherry leads the way. Candied chestnut. Fudge. Leather.
Finish: Robust. Warm. Spicy.
Comment: A distinguished expression of sweet Oloroso, even if it seems a bit ostentatious on the palate. For afterdinner enjoyment.
