A Whisky that looks like Guinness? Not quite but it is one of the darkest Whiskies in production today.
, 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.
