Jim Murray’s review of Cú Dhub

blog info BY   blog info 0 COMMENT   blog info News

Whisky Guru and connoisseur, Jim Murray, recently reviewed the Cú Dhub Back Single Malt Scotch Whisky in the 2013 edition of his whisky Bible. Here it gained praise and approval from Jim Murray’s experienced pallet unlike it has done before. Appointing the Cú Dhub a score of 88, Murray writes:

Nose, 22: Leopards may not change their sport…but Black Dogs evidently do. Some serious toffee apple at play here helped along by a few zingy spices.


Finish, 21.5: Wins few prizes for its subtlety with its big, oily finish. But, again, there is enough in the complexity, and late spice especially, to make for an entertaining dram.

Balance 22: not exactly a thoroughbred and you won’t find it winning any prizes at Cruft’s. But a malt which has improved beyond recognition in recent years and now even boasts a degree of enjoyable complexity. And you know what…not a single sulphur note in sight… (Jim Murray, Whisky Bible 2013)
