To quote Bruichladdich's production director, Jim McEwan, "We have a lot of different casks here, first growth wine, port, sherry and bourbon. To make Black Art I do really crazy stuff with these casks but I won't tell anybody what I do. It is my dark art."

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 05/05/2012

Appearance:

Clear, brick red bronze with copper tint.

Aroma:

Port/wine-like nose with peaty punnet of dark forest fruit, rose petals, basil and vanilla.

Taste:

Charcoal, soil, peat, red wine, port, red berry, sweet oak, burnt toast, metallic-like light iodine and rock salt. Surgical in its delivery.

Aftertaste:

Long, very long - salty ruby port with faint peat and anise. A malt to challenge a port 'n' brandy, just lacks finesse.
