Tasting Notes

"The aptness of the name "Dubh Reserve" is evident on sight, as it pours with a very dark hue. Its aroma brings to mind dark chocolate and Assam tea. It's quite hot on the palate, with a bittersweet-molasses taste that competes with its malty grain base. The charred oak contributes an appealing smokiness. "
