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

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.

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.

A fine standard

Not sure I completely agree with the MoM notes but tasting is a personal thing. I get more confectionary and notes of exotic fruit, particularly banana.

I got a bottle of this, from MoM, a month or so ago and I reckon this is just about nailed on value for money. Sometimes you pay a small fortune for something that seems to have been matured in casks that previously contained fish, sulphur and urine and then you pay almost nothing for something that you find glorious! This is priced just right. Get a bottle, so you have a great fulcrum, against which you have an eternal measure for what is good value for money and what isn't.

...and if you find you disagree, at least you have a thoroughly nice single malt.

...or not; tasting is a personal thing.

See what I did, there?
