Blended Scotch Whisky
70cl / 40%
A whisky with a long and storied history, Black Bottle today embraces modern innovations such as the use of alligator charred casks and virgin oak finishing, but at its heart it remains a Highland and Islands-influenced traditional smoke-edged blended Scotch whisky.
A terrific dram for the money, Black Bottle Original is a top-drawer premium blend that has stood the test of time.
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.
