Mellow and whisky-like over smooth dark chocolate and a touch of toffee.
Sweet malt is quickly countered by bitter dark chocolate that has a slightly powdery texture. Tangy oak notes emerge and there's a whisky tingle on the tongue.
Bitter chocolate and coffee, with tangy oak adding to the dryness.
Another great offering from the Ola Dubh range.
Harviestoun's Old Engine Oil has been aged this time in 18-year-old whisky casks.

Decidedly different. Meaty. Burnt. Maybe burnt roast dinner including the onions left in the pan for the gravy. A whiff of smoke from a peat fire. Rubber and stewed
plums. A hint of whisky but without the alcoholic high notes.
Mouthfilling but light.
Balanced. Leaves a light after taste of dry, roasted malt and very light peatsmoke, like you've been drinking coffee in a room with a peat fire.
Unusual one this, and very drinkable indeed. Clever.
