“Just before Master Distiller Jim McEwan retired in 2015 he took me to one side and handed me his recipe for the next iteration, Black Art 5. It was an emotional moment, the handing over of responsibility of one of the greatest drams we’ve ever created. I have to say I took the recipe from Jim’s hand and dutifully ignored it. This had to be my Black Art.” — Adam Hannett, Head Distiller.
Black Art, a series of cuvees, each one a personal selection of very special casks from all corners of the warehouse - casks that only distillers the calibre of Jim Mcewan and his now successor Adam Hannett could keep in their minds.
The assemblage of which would never be divulged, this is the distillers secret.
This highly anticipated 5th release of the mystic single malt is just as enigmatic as the last.
With only a release of 12,000 individually bottled numbers produced, all of which have been non chill-filtered meaning the whisky retains its original colour, aromas and taste.
Nose: Lavish fruit notes of cherry, mango, apricot and damson before a warming orange citrus appears, all swathed in an oak blanket of soft brown sugar, vanilla and figs dipped in syrup. The constant evolution of flavour, hints at the depth and secret complexity of this dram.
Palate: A black velvet quality that comes from the age of the spirit, with the pedigree of casks coming together to give you a mouthfeel that is unlike anything else. Never ending fruit, much like the nose while the structure of the oak gives honey, tobacco, vanilla and hints of spicy cinnamon.
Finish: Light stone fruits and a cream texture are a delight with a perfect balance of oak, malt and fruit. As the flavours begin to fade a gentle floral mellowness settles to leave a lasting impression.
