Insider knowledge: Bladnoch 9 Year old 2002 - Distillery Label (55.70%) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Bladnoch 9 Year old 2002 - Distillery Label (55.70%) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Barley, fresh cut hay and vanilla with a hint of spice.
Palate: Honey and barley sweets with nutmeg and cinnamon.
Finish: Reasonably long with notes of mead and spice.
Overall: A great showing from the re-imagined Bladnoch.
