Bladnoch Distillery’s highly anticipated brand new 17 Year Old Californian Red Wine Finish Single Malt was our exclusive September Member Add-in (a special extra on-top of the superb Westward!).
Aged 17 years in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in Californian Red Wine casks, Master Blender Nick Savage created a magnificently rich and complex dram packed with juicy cherries, dried fruit, dark coffee, creamy toffee, vanilla and orange marmalade that sold out in absolutely no time!
Non-chill filtered, natural colour, 46.7% ABV.
Colour: Copper red.
Nose: Rich and composed, dried fruit, coffee, cherries, toffee, vanilla and sweet oak.
Palate: Lively but smooth. Spicy oak, prunes, orange marmalade, cherries, with hints of liquorice and cinnamon.
Finish: Quite complex, malty, dried fruits, shortbread and spicy, lightly peppery oak.
