Bladnoch Samsara. Image courtesy Bladnoch Distillery.The first in a new series of releases from Bladnoch following the distillery’s revival, this no-age-statement single malt is blended from a range of older Bladnoch whiskies at least eight years old and finished in a combination of ex-Bourbon and first-fill California red wine casks.

The nose is fruity and vibrant with notes of fresh berries, orange pekoe tea, vanilla, and a hint of plums. The taste starts off dry and sweet, then turns fruity with orange peel, a hint of mango, vanilla, plums, red grapes, and a good maltiness in the background. The finish is subtle and smooth with hints of berry cobbler and red grapes. (March, 2017)
