Bladnoch Distillery Adds A Ten Year Old Scotch Whisky To Its Portfolio

Scotland’s most southernly distillery, Bladnoch, has been getting its groove back in recent times after being acquired by¬†Australian entrepreneur David Prior back in 2015. His team recently introduced a quite expensive luxury whisky bottling, and now has gone to the other end of the pricing pool with the unveiling of a limited edition ten year old Scotch.

The new Bladnoch 10 Year Old, according to those behind it, is fully matured in ex-bourbon casks, which are said to contribute both sweet and spicy characteristics to its overall flavor profile. It is a non-chill filtered expression, with natural coloring and bottled at 46.7% ABV.

“The Bladnoch 10 year old bourbon cask finish represents an exciting new path for the brand, its is a great accompaniment to the rest of the Bladnoch range, adding a more accessibly priced premium scotch, making it perfect for a day-to-day dram,” said Prior in a prepared statement.

Plans call for this lemon gold colored whisky to have a limited release, and no immediate price was given. You’ll find limited official tasting notes below for your consideration. It joins, besides the previously mentioned high end bottling, 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, a 25-year-old new-oak finish single malt.

  • Nose: Grassy, floral aromas along with oaky, vanilla and citrus.
  • Palate: Ginger, coconut, gooseberry and vanilla shine through.
  • Finish: Spicy citrus, which is clean and refreshing.
