Product Description

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

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    • 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.

    Steve Oddy,

    Nose: Very pleasant nose for me, Oaky, mildly spiced fruit, caramel, floral. Taste: Woody spices, quite thin in viscosity, watery even, mellow. Once swallowed, the next taste, is hard to distinguish, as the finish covers the flavours in the mouth, tastes like it's been watered down, as it's so thin and smooth, it’s the sort of whisky that you could drink alot of and get very drunk, quite quickly as it's so mild. Finish: Not a strong finish, not aggressive like some other Whisky's, it's milder and more refined, a good whisky for evening drinking, it already tastes like it's been diluted with water or ice. Hints of Pepper and a gentle lingering smokiness, perfect for the table, prehaps with cheese to clean your palette before the next course, would I buy again, yes to share amongst dinner guests who are unsure about Whisky's. Perfect with a strong cheese.

    Great for the price. Sometimes you just want a shot of something and not think about it too much. However, that doesn’t mean you should compromise on the flavour. Black Bottle or Double Black by JW and you’ll be grand.

    Malc Cleverley,

    Always buy my Black Bottle from TWE. When I discovered this whisky I found what is now my firm favourite. I’ve heard people say it doesn’t compare well to the original. Well, I never tasted the original so am unable to compare, I love this whisky, a really strong flavour and bite with a m smooth hint of smokiness and a nice (but not too much) sweet rich finish. If you like rich but not overly smokey whisky give this one a go, I’m glad I did!!
