Review: Bladnoch 2006 14 Year Sherry Cask
Bladnoch 2006 14 Year Sherry Cask / 51.1%
This Bladnoch was distilled December 2006 and Bottled in March 2020 from Sherry Butt #420; this is bottle number of 641/661. It’s a single-cask, non-chill-filtered, cask-strength release!
Besides the liquid, it comes in a very thick-glass square decanter with a metal-ringed stopper and an extra inch of glass on the bottom, corners smoothly rounded off. The bottle is a little bit “extra”.
- Color: russet (1.3)
- Nose: figs, brown sugar, orange marmalade, cigar smoke, and leather
- Taste: dry plums, baked leather, that “new plastic” smell, citrus spritz, and malty sherry
- Finish: medium; lean beef jerky and icing
A lowland sherry bomb, what a surprise! This is surprisingly good, no off notes or excessive sulphur. The flavours turns surprisingly between flat/baked and rich/marvellous. Excellent texture.
