Since 1879, the Graham family’s enterprising legacy is reflected in the iconic BLACK BOTTLE Scotch Whiskey. With its distinctively full, rich and slightly smoky character, this whiskey provides inspiration for others to follow their own path.
Being from Aberdeen, the original recipe would have included malts from in and around the Aberdeenshire area. We carefully selected a number of single malts and grains in order to return the recipe back to the way it was back in 1879.
The new liquid retains a level of smoky distinctiveness but has now been double matured in the finest virgin oak casks which add a rich sweetness to the blend resulting in a more refined, smoother finish. The reimagined black bottle also marks a return to the Grahams’ original vision, with a glass of pure blackness, a distinctive golden label and a blend as delicious as ever. Distilled, blended and bottled in Scotland.
NOSE: Fresh and floral with freshly sawn oak and spice aromas, followed by hints of smoke. PALATE: Silky, mellow, fruity, and smoky flavours with subtle sweet oak and honey. FINISH: Soft, elegant spice, nutmeg, pepper, and a gentle lingering smokiness.
