Ok so this is my first review here. I'm not a newby to whisky but I'm by no means an expert so apologies to anyone wanting an in depth professional review.

What I can say is that this is different to most whisky's I've had before. It's very red in colour, as others have said nearly pink, and it does have an almost wine like taste to start. The warmth seems to build slower than some other whisky's which hit you straight away. Very smooth and easy to just sip gently and very enjoyable.

As an aside, I don't know if the dark arts was to blame but after just 2 small glasses I did have very vivid dreams. Maybe there is some darkness at work after all

All in all a very nice bottle

A word on the marketing though: am I the only one who noticed that they seem to have used the star of David instead of the pentancle on the box and bottle? Interesting error!
