lack & White Blended Whisky is a classic old blend of some of the finest whiskies in Scotland, with a high proportion of quality grain whisky. None other than Dean Martin was said to be particularly fond of Black & White.
Creator James Buchanan apparently got the idea for the brand on his way home from a dog-show, and in the 1890s, The Scottie and Westie on the label were added, and became iconic symbols.
Tasting note: Nose: Medium Sweet, Oak, Biscuits, Rather Sharp Grain Alcohol, Vinegar, Touch of Peat. Taste: Rough and Tough. Grain Alcohol and some Sugared Dried Fruits. Bit of Oak and Pepper. Finish: Short. Sharp Grain Alcohol and a little Oak and Vanilla. Hint of Honey. When adding a couple of drops of water you get rid of most of the Alcohol on the Nose and get more Grain, Straw and a little Malt. It completely waters down the Palate however and the Finish becomes even shorter with a Licorice note right at the end. So while water certainly benefits the Nose, it does not have a positive effect on Palate and Finish.
