A new Blended Scotch wit a complex aroma and flavor profile that delivers a tour of Scotland in a glass.
Bladnoch Distillery was founded in 1817 by John and Thomas McClelland. Since then it has been merged and acquired a lot of times — suffering the slings and arrow of outrageous fortune and occasional mis-management. But a few years ago, Australian entrepreneur David Prior bought the entire property — literally lock, stock, and barrels. He has installed all new equipment and is issuing forth releases from inventory and new-make production. Interestingly, it is one of the only six remaining Lowland Single Malt distilleries, situated in the most southern part of Scotland.
Pure Scot Blended Scotch Whisky is a blend of Bladnoch Single Malt, Grain Whisky, and aged Single Malts from Speyside, the Highlands, and Islay. The idea is to create a balanced Scotch blend with a consistent character and complex flavor profile. Mission accomplished. And the presentation is beautiful as well with a modern bottle that makes the entire experience feel as good as it tastes.
The Lowlands used to produce nearly all of the Whisky in Scotland. But tax laws and market disruptions decimated the local distilleries, while the Highlands flourished with illegal, hidden stills that evaded the taxmen. Well, times have changed and the industry is reviving in the Lowlands once again.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance is complex with notes of sultanas, butterscotch, baking spices, warm granola clusters, vanilla, and roasted nuts.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the tongue the flavor of malt shines through over a backdrop of ground ginger, rancio, peat smoke, toasted raisin bread, and shortbread biscuits.
The finish is medium-length with a warm malty drift.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Pure Scot Signature Blended Scotch Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
