Bladnoch "Samsara" Lowland Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $73)

SKU #1319998 Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Samsara is a combination of 8 to 10 year old whiskies matured in first-fill bourbon barrels and California red wine hogsheads, bottled non-chill filtered. Initially slightly savory on the nose, then peaches and cream, and soft spices. The palate is supple and sweet, with vanilla, mango, and passion fruit. The finish is long, with spicy pears. Drier spices emerge and ultimately, light tannins. The red wine influence is greatly enhanced by the addition of a few drops of water. (GS, Winter 2016) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Distiller's notes: "A tribute to the rebirth of our 200 year old distillery. Casks are hand selected to bring together this luscious Single Malt. Full bodied and fragrant with a rich core and lingering tail. This unique malt is created by blending Bladnoch Single Malts matured in first fill ex Bourbon casks and first fill ex Californian Red Wine casks – both American Oak – to create a rich and smooth winey palate. Crafted using only the purest ingredients – pristine water from the River Bladnoch and locally grown barley – Samsara is non-chill filtered, naturally coloured, and a composition of well-aged Bladnoch Malts.The name “Samsara”, meaning ‘rebirth’ symbolises it’s first release and reawakening of Bladnoch Distillery. Tasting Notes Finished in Californian red wine and ex bourbon casks, Bladnoch Samsara Single Malt is luscious, full bodied and fragrant, with a rich, lingering core. Nose: Quite concentrated, fruit compote, with plums, vanilla and orange blossom. Palate: A sweet winey start, then drying slightly before more plums and vanilla flavours, some citrus and a malty core. Nicely structured. Finish: Mellow and winey with a spicy, lingering tail. "
