Proof66 Notes

The Cu Dhub--known as "black dog" in Gaelic--is in reference to the extremely dark coloring of the whisky, very uncharacteristic in the scotch world. The Cu Dhub is a follow-up to the Loch Du, which became something of a celebrated and divisive whisky. The website describes an involved tale of "The Witch of Laggan" who fought the hero and his two black dogs as the legend behind the whisky. They suggest looking for notes of licorice and vanilla. The color comes from the addition of black caramel (note: caramel coloring is allowed in scotch though it is usually not announced ad emphasized as it is done for the Cu Dhub). The product appears to be made at the Mannochmore Distillery in Speyside (itself run by Diageo). The brand is owned by the Danish company Mac Y
