Ola Dubh Special Reserve 12

Motor oil pour as usual with no lace, but a nice ring and thin film of mocha head sitting on the surface.
Nose is big on the whisky aroma and it is light and tempting – very easy.
Obviously a malty monster with plenty of mild raostiness. This is my favorite of the three cask aged Ola Dubh beers, it seems the most balanced and smoothest. Still quite earthy in the finish (that I do not care for much), but this feature seems to be the most reserved in this beer as opposed to the others in the series.
Finishes with a pleasing, light alcoholic warmth.
