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.
