Ola Dubh Special Reserve 18
Aged in Whisky Casks
Ola Dubh 18 is what you get when you age Old Engine Oil in casks formerly used to mature Highland Park 18 (‘Best Spirit in the World’), which imparts a fruity, whisky character into our rich, dark beer.
The initial whisky hit on the nose gives way to more delicate aromas of chocolate, fruity coffee grounds and hints of woodland berries. The flavour is a very appetising blend of sweet malts, vanilla, oak and tobacco. It has undertones of raisins and other dark, dried fruits; a delicious testament to Highland Park’s bias toward sherry casks.

In the beginning...
It all started on a sunny day on October 5th, 1983. We'd love to say that it was one of the most memorable days of founder, Ken Brooker's life, but that night he hosted one of his legendary tasting sessions and he can't remember much about it.
In the years that follow, Ken continues to brew beers in his shed and host his friends. Word spreads and his friends begin to bring along their friends and their friends' friends, until eventually Tuesday nights at Ken's attracts up to 40 people!www.harviestoun.com
