Rare stuff indeed. This was distilled at Mannochmore from 1996 to '97. This 10 year old is known as "The Black Whisky", so named for its very dark appearance. The producers attribute the colour to the use of double charred casks. Perhaps there's a drop or two of spirit caramel in the equation. Regardless, this is quite a collectible, even if it's not particularly well-regarded by critics.

I have had two bottles of loch Dhu. I cannot understand the bad crit in some of the reviews other than maybe something else in a Loch Dhu bottle. Loch Dhu black whisky is like drinking silk sooo smooth no harshness or afterburner absolutely delicious . Now looking for a third bottle.

I tried his whiskey for the first time this evening in the Alexander Bar at the Grande Bretagne hotel in Athens. This whiskey in my opinion is pretty awful. My first smell before tasting was of liquorice and it seemed interesting so I bought a glass. A mouthfull of this whiskey is enough and the old saying that curiosity killed the cat came to my mind. This whiskey is so bitter that it is almost medecinal, therefor destroying your palate. In most whiskeys there is a particular characteristic that I like and can take on board. Unfortunately with this bottle of Black whiskey there is nothing that I like.

I was looking for a Scotch Whisky to sauté shrimp with and gave this a try.It was good for cooking but not so much for drinking.Used it in the kitchen for ten years.

I bought a bottle of this when it first appeared on the shelf of the Off licence (well actually it was the NAAFI in Germany in the 90s and Im sure it was a pre release special offer). It took me about 18 years to drink the bottle. It happened to be the most disgusting filth I have ever tasted. I kept it A. In the hope that I could grow to like it and B. to give to guests as an example of a minging whisky. It tasted like sweet burned black treacle with extra soot.I tried it neat with ice. I mixed it with : water, coca cola,lemonade, fruit juice etc , port, gin, and various better whiskies. No amount of mixing could get rid of the awfulness.It poisoned everything. I tried it as a foot rub for my athletes foot. It seemed to feed the disease. I finally choked down the last f=dregs in a vain attempt to free up some cupboard space for a better whisky. Unfortunately I replaced it with equal awfulness in the form of Auchentoshan, but thats another sad tale.

A friend of mine gave me a glass last night and I have never tasted such a deliciously rich, complex malt. Smooth and extraordinary, burnt toffee, sherry and loads more. And now I find it was only made for two years! What a tragedy.

This had a very unusual flavor, after letting it breath for about 30 minutes it had lots of burnt caramel flavors and the aroma of new leather, reminding me of the smell of riding a brand new saddle strapped on your horse for the first time. The flavors are very complex and unforgettable. This is one of the only single malts that I can clearly recall tasting, the flavors hitting my pallet and the distinct aroma. Very memorable. I would try this if you ever get a chance, it has not been produced since 1999, and becoming quite scarce.
