Black Bottle

£18.95
Black Bottle is a blended Scotch Whisky bottled by Burn Stewart Distillers.
+ -

A bottle of the 2013 relaunched Black Bottle. Owners Burn Stewart have decided to return the brand to its original 1879 roots, including the black glass that gave the blend its name. With less of a focus on Islay, there is less peatiness than hitherto, with the smoky flavours being balanced with increased fruitiness and elegance.

Tasting Notes by Anonymous

NOSE

Freshly cut oak and caramel. Hint of something medicinal at the back, but with heavy brown sugar notes swamping it. Hints of nail varnish touches and polished oak.

PALATE

Milk chocolate, ginger, lots of woody spice, brown sugar, sour apple hints, golden syrup behind.

FINGER

Lingering syrup with touches of cinnamon and freshly sawn oak.

COMMENT

Very focused on Golden Syrup sweetness, with that richness backed up by lots of woody notes. Very different to the previous edition, with no real smoke, but packed full of sweet and rich flavour.

Producer's Note

NOSE

Fresh and floral with freshly sawn oak aromas. Spicy with hints of smoke.

PALATE

Silky, mellow and fruity with balanced smoky / peaty flavours then sweet oak and heather honey.

FINISH

Soft, elegantly spicy, nutmeg, pepper and a gentle lingering smokiness.
