Tried this along side the new Black Barrel expression and the difference is astounding. The new Black Barrel is much harsher arm rougher while this is smooth, tasty and very drinkable neat. I’m sad to hear this line is no longer available. I found a hidden stash at an out of the way corner liquor shop and no one knew what it was. I bought the whole lot...I’ll shed a tear when I drink my last dram of it.
