1990 Bladnoch 23 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #1054 Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1154935

Ladies and gentlemen, Bladnoch single malt whisky is finally here in the U.S.! That's not to say you couldn't get Bladnoch whisky in the past, but it had to come in from an independent bottler like Signatory or Chieftain's (we did our own cask a few years back). But this particular Bladnoch doesn't come via a third party. It's distillery-direct, straight-from-the-source Bladnoch and our three casks mark the first time any American retailer has done business with the Armstrong family directly (we worked with them to design our own new labels specifically for the U.S. market). Formerly owned by Diageo, Bladnoch distillery was shut down in the mid-90s until two Irish brothers - Raymond and Colin Armstrong - purchased the site and lobbied to have it resurrected. By 2000, they were distilling whisky at Bladnoch once again. Located in the Scotland's deep southern region, it's one of three designated "Lowland" distilleries and it's by far the most interesting of the group. The 23 year old cask we purchased actually comes from the Diageo era and was included in the stocks originally purchased with the distillery. After two decades in oak, the lively, fruity character of the whisky has become more supple and oily, with soft brandied cherries and crème brûlée on the backend. The whisky evaporated itself down to a very drinkable 44.4% naturally, meaning you don't need to add water whatsoever despite the cask strength proof. Rejoice and celebrate the true Lowland whisky!

Phenomenal Scotch! My personal favorite from this excellent batch of K&L special bottlings. Very soft and supple on the palate, at that perfect stage when you can clearly see the benefit of the spirits age but before the vibrancy and freshness starts to succumb to more wood orientated and secondary flavors. This is still showing lovely fruit and honeyed malt characters. Very layered and complex.
