Bladnoch Samsara Bottling Note

The first of three new releases from Bladnoch in early 2017 to celebrate the reopening of this Lowland distillery. Although it doesn't carry an age statement, it's said to be made up of whiskies that are a minimum or 8 years old and well as older, rarer whiskies. First fill Californian red wine and bourbon casks were used for maturation, whilst 'Samsara' appropriately enough means 'rebirth'.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Quite concentrated, fruit compote, with plums, vanilla and orange blossom.

Palate: A sweet winey start, then drying slightly before more plums and vanilla flavours, some citrus and a malty core. Nicely structured.

Finish: Mellow and winey with a spicy, lingering tail.

Bladnoch Samsara Reviews

Just gorgeous changed my opinion of this distillery

I wasn’t a fan of the previous malts from Bladnoch until I tried the Samsara. It has a complex aroma and a smooth rich red fruit , berries and plummy taste leaving a slight citrus after taste , just gorgeous !

Very nice overall. Definitely would recommend.

Mellow nose, sweet, fruity especially of dried cherries, hint of orange blossoms.
Wonderful mouth feel - quite oily. More fruit owing, no doubt to the wine casks, cinnamon and spice. Slightly salty.
Short finish, slightly metallic

Just Superb.

We stayed in Newton Stewart a few years ago and the distillary was closed but I found a bottle of this in a book shop up the road (only in Scotland). On the first sip I was blown away, this whisky is by far the very best I have tasted, with its chocolate background with fruits and vanilla. Stunning.

Absolutely delightful

I was given a bottle as a gift. Thoroughly enjoyable. Great neat or on ice. Would highly recommend for those who like the taste of wine-barrel aged whiskies. The shiraz cask adds something special.

Lovely this whisky, the same style Japan whisky. Orange nose

Top notch

The nicest whisky I’ve tasted. I’m not a big drinker and normally go through 1-2 bottles per year. I finished this one after only six weeks.

Far and away the nicest whisky I’ve had. Lots of vanilla and a sweet start, with plenty of spice on the finish. Deeeeelicious

Don't be fooled by the bottle, its a lovely whisky too.

Given this as a gift and taught , gorgeous bottle, no age statement, possibly mediocre whisky
but I was pleasantly surprised.

Burns Night Whisky

Lovely Orange nose. An almost apricot taste similar to Amaretto but not as sweet and a lingering spicy aftertaste.

Nuff said!

Great whisky! I was there before and now after, new and repowered by the land! Love it!

A surpising find from the Lowlands

So there is one other review at the time of this writing. They seem to like it, but only give this dram 3.5 stars. For me, this is a 5 star buy. Is this the best or my favorite? In short, no. However, it is 1/2 the price and represents a smooth, complex dram that despite not carrying an age statement, it tastes like a mature whisky, with a brilliant finish that is that is spicy, but not overly so. On the nose it is like a Dreamsicle, vanilla over oranges with a dense malt behind it all. On the palate it is light, actually more sweet than I would normally like, but the hit of spice on the back of the palate quickly balances the tone. For a bottle under $70 USD, this is one incredible bottle of spirits.
