World’s Best Ever is dipping their coverage into the dark side with a look at this scotch from Bruichladdich. Their Black Arts 2 is a 21 year old variant which they describe as “totally selfish, decadent, late night, brooding dram.” Shit, I love how that sounds. How’s the nose on Black Arts 2? A bit less fiery than I would have assumed: “An opening bouquet of cherry blossom and deep red rose gives way to a rainbow of soft ripe red fruits; redcurrant, loganberry, damson, apricot and blackberry crystallised with soft brown sugar.”
We love the bottle on this one.
