Last week, a few journalists in Australia got a preview of the new single malt from Bladnoch. Two expressions are already in the making. A no-age statement whisky at 46% ABV and a 52-year old expression. The first one will be released somewhere soon, the older one probably in the middle of the year.

Seems like the website got a complete make-over and they created a new twitter handle (@bladnochmalt) for the company. They could have simply renamed the old one and keep the exisiting followers, but hey, that's just me... And what do we see in the whisky section? Yes indeed, the very same bottle with a generic label. The days of the very retro-looking Bladnoch are definitely over.

But let us be not too rash with our commentaries before having tasted the whisky at least. There's simply too much we don't know yet and Bladnoch deserves a fair chance. To be continued in the near future.
