Black Snake – First Venom by Blackadder (Review)

BarleyMania - Black Snake First Venom - Exclusive Limited Edition Bottling For Germany (Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review Tasting Notes Vatting Vatted PX Sherry Cask)

Attention, this reptile is prone to biting! But don’t worry, when it pumps its venom into your veins, you will feel delighted rather than paralyzed. Called a “Whisky from the Old School” by its distributor, the Black Snake – First Venom is a natural cask strength bottling that any sherry fan will instantly fall in love with. As its name suggests, it did not spend too many years in the hand-selected PX Sherry cask chosen for its maturation. But in this particular case, the rather young age is an absolute blessing. The Black Snake – First Venom is not only brash in color, but also robust, feisty and striking in taste. While this particular edition has been released exclusively on the German market, I am sure that the Dutch and international bottlings of the Black Snake – First Venom are equally as good!

Nose: Distinct, strong and spicy with notes of cranberry, pepper, soy and grape.
Palate: This well-crafted malt proudly bears the hallmarks of the PX Sherry cask it was matured in. It shows a richness of facetes, being youthful and punchy on the one hand as well as mouth-filling and complex on the other.
Finish: Now the venom kicks in! A stout mix of red fruits, well-seasoned nuts and crème brûlée puts every fibre of your body on fire!
