Bladnoch 6yo OB Bourbon matured 57.3%.
Nose: Very malty with a citrus tang. I can't get over how consistent the drams have been. Maybe its been the absence of weird finishes. Vanilla notes come through after a few seconds as the initial spiritiness goes away. Old fashioned custard powder. Custard cream biscuits.
Palate: The initial hit is a little hot, but it quickly resolves into a lovely play between the malt and the vanillins. A bit unrefined at this age, but delicious nonetheless.
Finish: A little unstable. Creates little hotspots that jump around, but ultimately the custardy vanilla wins through.
This is amazing stuff for 6yo and really promises good things for the future.
