Cù Dhub The Black Whisky
Cù Dhub // Speyside, Scotland
Cù Dhub, meaning "black dog" and pronounced "kaddoo," is distillery bottling of the creatively-named Speyside Distillery in southern Speyside (yes, there is a distillery called "the Speyside Distillery"). The whisky is blackened with caramel coloring to provide the shtick for this product, and it is named for a legend in which the Witch of Laggan fled into the Forest of Gaick to escape several black dogs who were chasing her. The site of her sanctum, the forest, is also home to the distillery. Bottled at 40% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
