Bladnoch Adela 15 Year
Bladnoch // Lowlands, Scotland
The Bladnoch distillery was mothballed from around 2010 and was revived in 2017. This single malt is comprised of stocks that were ageing prior to its closure, aged for a minimum of 15 years in oloroso sherry butts made from Spanish and American oak, some of which were first fill. The Adela is not chill filtered or artificially colored.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"The sherry barrel provenance of this whisky is evident right on the aroma and first taste. It's full of raisins and figs on the palate, with a nutty character and a long finish of orange peel and leather. This is a winning dram and augurs promising things for Bladnoch's revival."
