The whisky is non chill-filtered and has no color added. Bottled at cask strength. Note: This is not available in the US.
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.

"A refined nose with wood polish, beeswax, honeycomb, ginger cookies and orchard fruits. The palate shows a nice oily texture and a coating mouthfeel with more honey, caramel, vanilla and cookie dough. A spicy and oaky aftermath. Overall, probably the most well-crafted release out of the new Bladnoch expressions."
