Black Bottle Old Bottling Bottling Note

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

Consider this similar product...

Scottish Leader

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich and punchy, peat smoke wafting over plumes of fresh blossom and fruit... Something coastal.

Palate: Offers more peat, but this time a honeyed sweetness develops, fruitcake and oak.

Finish: Honeyed smoke clings 'til the last.

Overall: Enjoyable.

I discovered a shop still selling this so I got five bottles.It's delicious.The new one has no character.This old style is too good to be true it really is.May even sell a few.

The old black bottle was the best blended whisky on the market, with a unique smooth,peaty flavour. In our pub " The Rising Sun ", which is in a village just outside Luton, Beds , we had a Black Bottle club, and we all loved our wee whisky sessions on the old Black Bottle. Not one member of our club likes the new Black Bottle, as it is now just a run of the mill, plain, dram crying out for a mixer. We are experimenting with Antiquary, Monkey Shoulder, and Chivas Regal, to establish what whisky takes the place of the old Black Bottle. It was definitely not a connoisseur who changed the whole ethos of this brand.

Love the new (new in whiskey terms) BB. Still smokey, nutmeg blah blah. Best blend on the market.

Bought the new version not knowing it had changed.
What a disappointment . Nothing like the old flavour and taste.
Bring back the old.

Outstanding - Unique - why did they change it?

Old blend so much better than the new. Lovely smoke and fruit with a little bite.

One of the best blends for the price

Great Islay and Speyside mix. Hard to find now.

The older black bottle is much nicer then the new one. The blend of Islay malts is delicious.Please bring it back!

Sad news

Oh no! I was not aware that they have changed it but reading these reviews it sounds like a disaster. I loved this whisky, but so disappointed to learn of the change. I will not be searching out the 'new' bottling. Why oh why can't companies leave a winner alone?

They haven't a clue.

It is hard to believe how this company could have got it so wrong. A beautiful and tasteful whiskey replaced with a perfumed and bitty drink that is so far removed from the original it beggars belief. Not only is the new drink awful but the bottle design is a close second in the mess that has been created for no good reason. It took me all my time to finish the only one that I have bought and will ever buy. Totally agree with the consensus b wiffen and others.
