Lot Details


Bladnoch The Samhla 

A unique whisky that joins the past, present and future of Bladnoch Distillery together.

The Samhla Collection of three whiskies was released in 2023 to showcase the connections between generations. All three whiskies were built to both celebrate the treasure chest of rich stocks at Bladnoch and embody its heritage.

The Samhla, bottled at 44.1% abv, is the final addition, combining all three - The McClelland (1966 American Oak Hogshead), The Prior (1990 PX Sherry Butt) and The Sage (2008 American Oak Red Wine Hogshead).

Samhla means ‘symbol’ or ‘likeness' in Scots Gaelic.

Tasting Notes

Nose/Aroma: Notes of fresh apple and herbal tones, hints of liquorice appear with a subtle sweetness of honey.

Taste/Palate: Clementine orange, with the sweet viscosity of dark dates and black cherries, with a background hint of polished oak.

Finish: Uniquely long, with unfolding complexity, leading to a subtle spiced dryness.

The purchase of the bottle also includes a ceremonial key that will provide access to Bladnoch's future whisky locker/snug, as well as a personal invite from Master Distiller, Dr. Nick Savage to be hosted at the distillery.
