A delicious, appetising, new expression of Black Bottle. As a blend, it is a star.
10 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Very fragrant. Slight sherry, lots of seaweed, hint of salt and soda-bread.
Palate: Malty. Soft, syrupy. Marzipan. Almonds. Grassy.
Finish: Peat comes surging through.
Comment: A delicious, appetising, new expression of Black Bottle. As a blend, it is a star.
Nose: Grassy grain thins out the deep peat. Saltiness adds depth and compliments peppery notes.
Palate: Chewy and smoky. Flavours intensify as the rich, clean and oily peat really kick in. Malty too.
Finish: Sensational. Waves of peat give way to cocoa/coffee effect. Unbelievably long for a blend.
Comment: Simmering, full-blooded blend that celebrates its 100% Islay malt roots by taking no prisoners whatsoever. Brilliant.
