Mannochmore Loch Dhu The Black Whisky 10 year old Whisky

The very controversial Black Whisky Loch Dhu is now very collectable and worth a try if you ever get the chance as there are so many mixed opinions over this dram and it is featured in both the 101 and 1001 whiskies to try before you die books.

Also featured in Ian Buxton’s 101 legendary whiskies you’re dying to try but (possibly) never will book.

Nose: Burnt treacle, flat cola, soy sauce, over ripe banana, liquorice.

Palate: More flat cola, burnt sugar, soy sauce and aniseed.

Finish: Syrupy and sweet with coffee grinds, cola and treacle toffee.

Heavily charred casks may be used to make the whisky dark but i would guess some spirit caramel here too? Dark and..well decide for yourself!
