  • Excerpt: I like it better than some of the other Black Arts that I've tasted over the past year at whisky parties, although I must confess that I cannot produce any tasting notes or scores to verify that gut instinct.

  • Excerpt: It morphs into something different with a subtle dry oakiness, dried peaches, apricots, and banana chips. The finish is dry and long, but subtle with dried fruits, a kiss of oak, and muted spices. Outstanding!

  • Excerpt: Viscous on the palate, which opens dry, with developing berry fruits and spicy oak, plus dried fruits and candied peel. Long and drying in the finish, with plum and peppery oak.

  • Excerpt: I don’t think it’s that bad, really, I’m just not into this style. I know, I’m really pressing that point. Love the young clean OBs ten times better.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: The finish is surprisingly malty, with some briny elements. It’s a departure for Black Art, to be sure, and yet it still manages to be weird and, at times, hard to embrace.
