iammarc (385) - Inverness, - MAR 20, 2012
330ml bottle 337 of 1481. Aroma: treacle, black cherries, slight alcohol. Pours dark brown, long soapy off-white head. Taste: Cherry notes, treacle, marmite(!), dark plain chocolate. Palate: Smooth, easy. Soft ’cloudy’ feel, gentle, slightly rubbery - in a nice way. Good smooth finish with a mild bitter burnt wood kick around the back of the tongue. Overall: Easy drinkability when you consider the abv. Easily the best offering from Black Isle.
