      I was excited to see this interesting offer from Aberfeldy when I was trying to figure out how to spend a gift card. I almost chose Dalmore 18, but opted for this instead due to the uniqueness. The colour of this is insane. So dark! My best approximation is the colour of steeped black tea. Apparently this is natural colour. This is 53.8%. I had a small taste neat then diluted to 46% with some water. Below tasting notes are at 46%. Nose: Grapes and raisins and figs and cinnamon and and and... This is super unique on the nose and reminds me of Christmas plum pudding cake (which I actually just had for the first time 6 days ago on Christmas this year). Spicy, rich, and sweet. Palate: Initial brown sugar and caramel then quickly turns to cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom. The tannin dryness is prominent on the sides of the tongue creating a multi-sensory experience. Finish: Very long and spicy. The cinnamon lingers and a black peppery finish persists for a good minute or more. Maybe some minty coolness here too as well as a touch of smoke coming through; although I'm not sure where this comes from since it's unpeated. The tannins tingle for some time on the sides of the tongue and back of the palate. Overall I am very pleased with my acquisition! It is super unique and I know I will ration this one very diligently over the next couple years!

    2. This Whisky is so DARK!! It's almost questionable if it is Whisky!! But its supposedly Non Chill Filtered, Natural Color, and Natural Strength(Cask Strength).
