This whisky comes from the speyside distillery and is as mysterious as the black mountain, Ben MacDui, from which it takes its name.
All that we know about this whisky is that it is finished in a combination of Ruby Black and Tawny port casks from the Douro Valley in Portugal.
"Aromas of fresh fruits mingle with sultanas and black raisins that open up in layers, eventually revealing a deeper darker side. In the taste this darker side dominates at first, with currants and rich black chocolate being foremost. Then both bitterness and sweetness present themselves in equal proportions gradually fading into a long finish"
