Omar - Black Queen Wine Barrel, 50-60%
Omar's Black Queen Wine Barrel is an under appreciated whisky in our opinion. The whisky was matured in bourbon casks and then re-casked into ex-wine barrels that were used to make their Black Queen Wine - a dark sweet wine. It is similar in flavour profile to a sherry cask whisky but without the same body.
Omar is a distillery near Taichung, Taiwan. A great place to visit and a nice proper little distillery with very friendly people. They have a range of cask strength whiskies which are well worth looking at, in particular their peated and bourbon cask ones.
