SquareMeal Review of Black Rock

This little sibling of nearby Worship Street Whistling Shop is a foxy modern Tokyo-style shrine to whisky with a unique centrepiece that’s guaranteed to provide tomorrow morning's talking point in the office – at least for Black Rock virgins. Dispensed from taps at one end, BR’s house whiskies course through parallel glass-covered channels, cut into a 20-foot transect of a fallen ancient oak transformed into a communal table. Upwards of 250 class-act malts and boss blends from distillers worldwide are displayed in glass cabinets, all grouped by flavour, style and price-point (from £7 per 35ml dram) to encourage experimentation. Alternatively, a dialled-down list of spot-on stirs includes Campfire (Bulleit, Lagavulin and smoked marshmallow) and Rice (a mix of Nikka Barrel whisky, ‘popcorn’ green tea, saké and coconut water) – one of several highballs to try with haggis balls and baked oysters at this solid City investment.
