Black does not even compare to Blue. I don't believe they are put out by the same company. Black tastes like Crown. Blue is the most common gifted alchohol in Olympia because it's the best. Blue is aged 60 years. Black: 12. Let me assure you that those extra 190 dollars are worth every penny. Black does not even compare to Blue.
I learned of Black's failings when my friend got back from Mexico. We had never had any Black, but apparently all his school friends had been using his place to party for two weeks while he was gone in DC then Mexico. They left a bottle of Black behind, next to our bottle of Blue. We helped ourselves to a taste-testing. People call that Scotch?
