Wemyss Malts – Melon Fan 1990

This is the final dram of my generous prize from Wemyss Malts. It’s a 1990 Bladnoch, bottled in 2015, at 46%.

Nose: Honey dew melon, oak, quite sweet, pineapple, maybe slightly sulphuric

Palate: Honey sweet with oak, spicy, mango, a little leather

Finish: Long, drying and spicy.

This was enjoyable enough, but not my favourite of the 5 by a long way. The scores as follows:

  • Nose: 7/10
  • Palate: 7/10
  • Finish: 8/10
  • Value for money: 7/10
  • Looks: 6/10

Giving a grand score of 72/100.
