Scott Selection (distilled at Bladnoch) vintage, 59%

Price: $75.00 Issue: Spring 2000 Reviewer: John Hansell

Gold color. Citrus zest aromas and creamy sweet notes-reminiscent of lemon meringue pie-with subtle tropical fruit and marshmallow notes dancing throughout. This whisky has great balance and is fully mature at 12 yrs., which should be no surprise for a Lowland whisky. The palate delivers what the aroma promises, with a touch of honey up front, citrus and vanilla in the middle, and a delicate dryness on the finish.I've always admired Bladnoch-a whisky that needs to be better known-and this expression reinforces my opinion.
