Beinn Dubh The Black 70cl
Aromas of fresh fruits mingle with sultanas and black raisins that open up in layers, eventually revealing a deeper and darker side. In the taste this darker sider dominates at first, with currants and rich black chocolate being foremost. Then both bitterness and sweetness present themselves in equal proportions gradually fading into long finish!
Produced with ruby black and tawny casks from Douro Valley in Portugal.
Beinn Dubh means "Black Mountain" in Gaelic. "Black mountain" is how Professor Norman Collie from University College of London described Ben Macdui, the highest peak of the Cairngorm Mountains, after his solo climb to the summit in 1891.
