Scotland’s Bladnoch Distillery has added an “accessibly priced” limited edition 10-year-old Single Malt to its range.
The Bladnoch 10-year-old is matured in Bourbon casks to harness sweet but spicy characteristics. The release is non-chill filtered and, like the rest of the Bladnoch range, naturally coloured to ensure the true flavour of Lowlands whisky is captured.
Australian entrepreneur David Prior purchased Bladnoch Distillery in 2015 and oversaw its extensive refurbishments. It has since resumed whisky production under the watch of master distiller Ian MacMillan.
David said: “The Bladnoch 10-year-old bourbon cask finish represents an exciting new path for the brand. It is a great accompaniment to the rest of the Bladnoch range, adding a more accessibly priced premium Scotch.”
The 46.7% ABV expression is described by its creator as showing “grassy, floral aromas” on the nose along with oak, vanilla and citrus. On the palate, ginger, coconut, gooseberry and vanilla shine through, and the finish is “a burst of spicy citrus”.
The release is the latest in a line-up that includes Bladnoch Samsara, a no-age statement Single Malt, Bladnoch Adela, a 15-year-old Oloroso Sherry matured Single Malt, and Bladnoch Talia, the 25-year-old new oak finish Single Malt.
In celebrating its 200-year anniversary earlier this year, Bladnoch unveiled a 29-year-old single malt Scotch whisky.
Bladnoch 10-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is available from The Whisky Exchange at £59.99.
