Customer Rating

Another divisive whisky in the vein of Loch Dhu - a massively dark dram with vociferous fans. The name is meant to mean 'black dog' in gaelic, although there are some questions about the spelling...


Cu Dhub Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Note

    Colour:  Solid Black

    Nose: Sweetness, tobacco, burnt wood, root of liquorice. A cool impression tones forward.

    Palate: Hot, notes of liquorice and vanilla tone forward. Sweet, smooth and well-balanced.

    Finish: Good balance between sweet and a hint of hot strong coffee. A whisky with a bite. The malt comes through.

    One of my favourite whiskies, with nice kick to it and a great look.

    i first tasted cu/dubh some twenty years ago it is fantastic malt.

    It is absolutely divine! Intriguing dark color. Intoxicating rich flavor. I hate to hear it went down the must have been amateur hour at your local whisky cabinet.

    Hmm, a terrifying number of positive reviews for this one.... I got bought it as a present and I can honestly say its the worst "whisky" I've ever had. I dont consider myself an expert but I'm sure the number of bottles I've purchased is now in triple figures. This ended up down the drain I'm afraid - avoid! Does not deserve this much praise!

    I'll forgive the Danes their spelling after trying a wee bottle of this whisky. It's superb, very easy on the tastebuds but very complex too. I won't wax lyrical on the subject, but just say keep up the good work!

    Extraordinary single malt. I had a notion that this would be peaty, and it's anything but. Fruit and caramel, a toffee-apple dram, great handfuls of the stuff. Quite something else.

    Just returned from Scotland, bought quite a few miniatures to sample different whiskys, this was one. Both me and my partner thought it was lovely, hints of caramel and licorice, nice aftertaste, would highly recommend it.

    Unusual and interesting - prevalent licorice (though not overpowering) and caramel malt but it just tastes too subdued... perhaps a cask strength bottling might secure my future patronage, for now though I'd say its good for the money, but save a few more quid and get yourself something with more oomph

    Stuff the spelling - Duhb, Duhb, Dubh and so on and so forth You're just wasting valuable drinking time, and if you want my opinion, which you're going to get regardless, it's WONDERFUL . . . .
