Tasting Notes:
Tasting note by Serge Valentin of WhiskyFun.com

Bladnoch had only two stills in 1964 (they added two in 1966).

Colour: amber.

Nose: superb this time. Bladnoch’s ‘citrusness’ is well here right upfront, coated with beautiful notes of old sherry and a most delightful OBE. Something like a blend of shoe polish, orange marmalade, walnut liqueur, thuja wood and old silverware. Very ‘antique’ indeed and truly lovable.

Mouth: oh yes, this is good. Again, something ‘antique’... Old nuts, marzipan, mastic, liquorice... It’s amazing how this one remained big and punchy through all these 30 years in glass. Does brown glass make it better? Goes on with notes of old rancio, very old Modena vinegar, something waxy, honeydew... This is superb.

Finish: maybe not the longest but it’s superb, doing the ‘peacock’s tail’ around notes of high-end orange marmalade (from waxy, mineral notes to aromatic herbs). Benedictine from a good vintage ;-).

Comments: it seems that bottle ageing suits Bladnoch well. Good good good! SGP:552 - 91 points.
