I'm not a fan of the typical grassiness and zesty bitterness of Bladnoch but I have to say this one adds a few rounder notes which makes it much more attractive. Probably the best Bladnoch I've tried, certainly on the nose.
Nicely candied. The usual grassiness is present, alongside a few gristy notes, but it's sweetened by dried pineapple and Honey Pops. Lemon wine gums. Lime juice and Demerara sugar. A slightly tropical version of the Lowlands, although it returns to slightly sharper grainy and lemony notes over time.
Punchy, nicely balanced between citrus notes (grapefruit, lemon zest) and a rounder, candied touch. Quite a peppery kick. More grassy this time, slightly more bitter as well. More grapefruit. Hints of tonic.
Rather long, grassy and lemony. Grapefruit tea.
