Samsara Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
Samsara is the no-age-statement release from the reborn Bladnoch distillery. This is sweet with notes of plum, vanilla and citrus. The first of three new releases from Bladnoch in early 2017 to celebrate the reopening of this Lowland distillery. Although it doesn't carry an age statement, it's said to be made up of whiskies that are a minimum or 8 years old and well as older, rarer whiskies. First fill Californian red wine and bourbon casks were used for maturation, whilst 'Samsara' appropriately enough means 'rebirth'. Founded in 1817, Bladnoch was initially established as a Farmhouse Distillery. Situated on the banks of the River Bladnoch, it stands out as Scotland's southernmost distillery. A quaint distillery, Bladnoch uses just one pair of stills, creating whiskies known for their signature light/delicate character, highly sought after by connoisseurs.

About the brand
1817 Bladnoch’s rich history dates back to 1817, when John and Thomas McClelland were first granted a licence to distil Whisky on their Bladnoch farm in Scotland’s Lowlands. For nearly a century, successive generations of McClelland family grew and modernised the distillery. At its peak, the site had six washbacks and annual production of approximately 230,000 litres of alcohol, which cemented its status as the “Queen of the Lowlands” 1905 Over the next 80 years, Bladnoch Distillery changed hands several times and continued to produce fine Lowlands Whisky. 1966 In 1956, Bladnoch Distillery Limited was created and the stills which had fallen silent during the war were recommissioned. The stillhouse was expanded to four stills in 1966. 1983 More recently, the distillery was owned by Arthur Bell & Sons (which would later become part of Guinness / United Distillers) between 1983 and 1993, a period during which the brand’s distribution was increased and a Visitor Centre was established. From 1993, the distillery was privately owned by Raymond and Colin Armstrong. 2015 Australian entrepreneur, David Prior acquired the company from Raymond and Colin Armstrong, and began an extensive refurbishment of the distillery. 2017 After 2 years of renovations under the direction of Master Distiller, Ian MacMillan, Bladnoch Distillery resumed production. In 2017, Bladnoch celebrated its 200 year anniversary, making it one of the oldest and one of the largest privately owned Scotch Whisky distilleries. 2019 Highly acclaimed Master Distiller, Dr Nick Savage joined the Bladnoch team. Bladnoch launched its state-of-the-art Visitor Centre experience, gift shop and Melba Cafe. TODAY Bladnoch celebrates its 203rd anniversary.

Possibly it was cos it was the sixth measure of the night however it's shading appeared to propose a more grounded flavor than it conveyed. The nose was peculiar it possessed a scent like cheddar and I thought perhaps they didn't wash the glass appropriately yet then I saw different audits that said child vomit or comparable so I wasn't envisioning that one. I didn't think that its hostile simply odd. When you moved beyond that you got the sweet red wine and orange notes coming through unpretentiously.

Tasting Notes
Nose
Quite concentrated, fruit compote, with plums, vanilla and orange blossom.
Taste
A sweet winey start, then drying slightly before more plums and vanilla flavours, some citrus and a malty core. Nicely structured.
Finish
Mellow and winey with a spicy, lingering tail.
