Pronounced ‘Kaddoo’, Cu Dhub Black is a slightly honeyed, thick, smoky offering from the Speyside distillery.
Nose: Well-rounded and smooth. Notes of gentle peat and wafting smoke. Hints of dark nuttiness and espresso beans. A touch of honey with vanilla fudge and a little whisper of something medicinal.
Palate: Quite thick and sweet. Notes of fudge and aniseed, a touch of something nutty with cappuccino and gentle smoke.
Finish: Fairly long with toffee sweetness and developing oak.
One of those excellent bottles that you will like. Closest thing to the more expensive Loch Dhu.
A superb malt – sit back, sip and enjoy.
