Ola Dubh 1991: Vintage Limited Edition Series | Harviestoun Brewery
Style: Porter - Imperial / Double
Out of Production
Description: Ola Dubh 1991 is the first in our annual Vintage Limited Edition Series (we only produced 20,000 bottles). We make Ola Dubh 1991 by taking our Old Engine Oil amped up to 10.5%. It is then aged exclusively in Highland Park casks from 1991 and is bottled at full strength – a mighty 10.5% abv. Ola Dubh (pronounced ‘ola-doo’ and Gaelic for ‘black oil’) was conceived in 2007. It was the first ale to be matured in whisky barrels from a named distillery and, with traceable casks and numbered bottles, it is a beer with real provenance. Consistent with the core Ola Dubh range, the 1991 Vintage is deep dark brown, dense and oily; the nose is redolent of soy and molasses with winey overtones and a gentle, earthy, hop aroma. The 1991 Vintage is somewhat sweeter than its counterparts and has delicious smoky-sherry notes on the palate, the flavours deriving at least as much from the whisky-infused-wood as the spirit itself. As expected from its higher strength, this is a bigger and bolder number than its siblings.
