The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Bladnoch is one of the lowland distilleries and if this independant bottling is anything to go by then it is producing some good spirit.  The nose is fresh, limey and sweet (like a good margarita) with some malt.  The taste is smooth, some malt, biscuit, caramel and vanilla.  There is a spicy tingle to the finish with some fresh wood notes.  Overall... very nice.
