Good news: You've got impeccable taste in liquor. The not-as-good news? It means it's currently out of stock. Add this bad boy to your wish list and we'll let you know if it comes our way.
A Whisky that looks like Guinness? Not quite but it is one of the darkest Whiskies in production today. 
 
Pronounced kaddoo, the Cú Dhub Whisky hailing from the Speyside Distillery the Forest of Gaick in, well, Speyside, Scotland is a slightly smoky number, heavily coloured and, by definition, scented with black caramel. Apparently it's the only black single malt on the market today. 

After 5 years of maturation in heavily charred casks, Cu Dhub Black Whisky is shipped off to Denmark where it is caramel-coloured to its signature coffee-black colour. It was created to reflect a Whisky called Loch Dhu, which was bottled for only a few years in the ’90s and managed to attain a sort of cult following during that time. While they might not have managed to recreate the taste and aroma of Loch Dhu, they've managed to craft a fine Scotch at a fine price. 

Oh, and make sure you watch out for the Witch of Laggan who roamed Forest of Gaick – her heart as black as Cú Dhub Whisky, so the legend says.
