  1. erogers scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    One of the best peated blends I've ever had.  Definitely the go-to brand for peated, blended scotch.  I've heard there is a new version which is not nearly as peated and has a very different taste profile.  Buy the old bottles while you can!
    • Nose
      Sweet, musty peat, with some light smoke, vanilla and cocoa in the background.
    • Taste
      Smoke, medium peat, cut grass, some caramel, a bit of smoky BBQ sauce.
    • Finish
      Medium peat, earthy, cut grass, burnt marshmallow/sugar, a bit of oak wood.

  2. drkrylov scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Black Bottle is a blended Scotch featuring a proportion of whisky from almost every distillery on Islay, a marked blend with plenty of character.

    Enjoyable.
    • Nose
      Rich and punchy, peat smoke wafting over plumes of fresh blossom and fruit... Something coastal.
    • Taste
      Offers more peat, but this time a honeyed sweetness develops, fruitcake and oak.
    • Finish
      Honeyed smoke clings 'til the last.
