The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    I have a soft spot for this blended malt.  I was given a bottle as a birthday gift many years before I become really interested in whisky by a colleague who has since passed away.  It turns out that this whisky will also "pass on" soon as it has been annnounced that this line will be discontinued.  Can I suggest they keep this get rid of Black? This nose has raisins, apples and spice, like a baked apple desert.  The taste is sweet caramel, rich and spicy and more than a hint of smoke.  The finish has a drying oakiness and then a quick hit of caramel again right at the end.  Very good and a clear step up from Red and Black in terms of complexity and balance.  I tend to like blended malts (Monkey Shoulder, Sheep Dip, Nikka All Malt) and I like this one.
