Thanks to /u/xile_ for sharing this one with us.
Bladnoch. Lowland. These two words are ones you hear in whisky circles, and then half the group goes “Huh, never had anything from there. What do they make again?”
Bladnoch has only recently been revitalized, so some of the older barrels from the last batch are popping up. Not to mention they were a distillery that opened and closed multiple times, and have only just reopened again for the second time in 17 years. It’s enough to confuse you and forget about them, contrary to that 80’s song by Simple Minds, “Alive and Kicking”.
As such, when the first sample was a Lowland, I was quite happy. It’s an older SMWS Bladnoch. I definitely haven’t had this.
So let’s see how it tastes, shall we?
