- The Back Art 3.1 does not oxidize very well (especially on the last 1/3 of the bottle). I noticed on my 4th and 5th drams after opening it that I was already loosing it's dynamic punch (although only very slightly). Still very good, all the way to less than 1/3 of a bottle up until 3-4 weeks ago (one year after opened). But now, on the last dram that can be squeezed out, it's lost most of what it once had.
The Black Art 3.1 needs to be consumed within in 6-10 months to fully enjoy this bottle, completely! Otherwise gas it once it's at 1/3 of a bottle (or sooner).
- Simply great whisky!
Nice intense sherry. Dark dried fruit. Strong hearty oak. Some leather.
Wonderful! Juicy and intense. Dark chocolate. Oak. Some leather. A little rest of the dried fruit.
Long and warm. Aromatic until the end.
- I give 5.1 the edge as this has a mild sulphur note on the nose and palate, otherwise I think it would be a tie. Beautifully balanced and intricate play of oak, fruits, vanilla, and spice.

- Great and mega complex. Would be for under or just under 200 € a really cool malt. But so the price is just too expensive.
- fruity, dignified, well balanced, incredible easy to drink and enjoy. this dram needs some time in the glas, dark fruits, some cherry, some sweet whine, moldy, a bit leathery, dry, add some spices, some malt, fruity, dried cereals,. Finish could be a bit longer for this one but still very fine. Fantastic dram!
- An incredibly intense, mature and voluminous malt - great barrel selection - 22 years of maturity - not very cheap, but also a top malt!
