Ola Dubh Special Reserve 16 - Harviestoun
Ola Dubh Special Reserve 16 is based on award winning Old Engine Oil matured in Highland Park 16 Year Old Whisky Barrels. It retains the appearance of used motor oil deep dark brown, dense and oily. On the nose there are notes of truffle oil and cocoa as well as faint smoke and heathery peat from the whisky casks. Lighter in body than its appearance suggests Ola Dubh is pithy, oily, salty and bitter on the palate. THe finish is exceptional burnt and bitter notes with an interplay of late hop characters, orange oil, fruity tartness and then delicate fragrant smoke.
