Mannochmore Loch Dhu The Black Whisky 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$399.00 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

Reputedly the worst Scottish Whisky to have been produced in recent history, and a comical centre piece within many a whisky circle. Surprisingly / unsurprisingly, there was an avid minority market of crazed devotees which saw prices rise after it was discontinued, and now a collectible for the ages.

"Thanks to Loch Dhu, Mannochmore went from 'relatively unknown' to 'infamous' without ever becoming really famous in-between. During the 1990's there used to be a big 'Public Warnings' page on this site and Loch Dhu inspired by far the most negative comments. Two of the most memorable remarks were 'This stuff is like licking an ashtray' and 'Needs no water. What it really needs is to be poured down the nearest sink." - Mannochmore distillery profile (whiskyfun.com)

If you're a firm believer in having a benchmark to evaluate your whiskies, this certainly qualifies for the lower end of the scale.

More information... Loch Dhu was distilled at the Mannochmore distillery in the heart of Scotland's Speyside region. There has been a distillery on this site since 1876. It takes its water from the Bardon Burn high up on Mannochmore hills. "Loch Dhu" meaning "Black Lake" in Gaelic was only crafted for a few short years in the mid 1990s. The amazing “black velvet” quickly acquired a cult following and unopened bottles are becoming increasingly difficult to find with prices rising fast. Its unique appearance was created by aging the whisky in special, double-charred oak casks, enhancing its distinct black colour and contributing to its smooth, slightly sweet flavour. The producers suggest you expect "... a slightly smoky nose with clean layered aromas of sweet malt and notes of ripe fruit and honey. 40% Alc./Vol. One bottle only to sell.
