Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Grassy, dry.
Palate: Dry, grassy, leafy.
Finish: Dry, herbal (bay leaves?)
Comment: Slightly lean. Where is the fruity softness of Bladnoch?
8.0
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Subtle, silky and sweet; the maltiness is all-embracing and clean. Soft vanilla and coriander add depth.
Palate: Early dry oak suggests decay but powering, intense, if unsophisticated malt gives balance.
Finish: Vanilla, toffee and cocoa.
Comment: An uncomplicated but less exhausted, more even Bladnoch than Adelphi's, offering pleasing balance. Past its best, though.
