Black Bottle Whisky -- 186 lbs (-43) [32X]



I've been wanting to try Black Bottle (which is the greenest black I've seen) ever since Jason Debly mentioned it, along with Teachers Highland, as a great scotch value in his humorous lambasting of Lauder's. According to Ralfy, the great YouTube scotch reviewer, Black Bottle contains a malt whisky from every of-age distiller in Islay. When I noticed Total Wine was now carrying Black Bottle, it was a no-brainer to toss it in the cart, and it did not disappoint. Black Bottle is a nearly perfect blend of creamy, sweet, and smoky scotch--everything I value in the right proportions--and as such is my new current favorite. Unfortunately, it's just out of my price range to drink regularly--Passport will have to suffice when I'm in a smoky mood.
