[40.0%・NAS・Bottled Circa 2016-2018・Pure Scot Bottling・General Release]
A not quite coherent showcasing of barley porridge and wood spices with a wee citrus addition. The minerals give off an industrial vibe.
Palate & Finish:
The delivery feels diluted with watered down barley sugar, wood chips and a little pinch of vanilla. Hints of orange peels and mangos in the mix as well but certainly thinned down. A wee bitterness sips out along with unpolished grainy notes.
I hope that Pure Scot will get re-branded quite dramatically once the casks the “new” Bladnoch had put down come of age, which should make things a little bit more interesting.
