Loch Dhu :

Here's a little funster from a funfaq :
Q: What to do with the Loch Dhu?
A: Word has it you can do the Dhu in the dumpster.

From Happyhours.com :
Mannochmore, Scotland - Loch Dhu Black Whisky, is an extraordinary single malt scotch. This 10-year-old expression is distilled in Mannochmore, which lies in the heart of Scotland's "Speyside" region, and imported by New York's Schieffelin & Somerset Company.
Loch Dhu, which means "Black Lake" in Gaelic, is aged in special, double-charred oak casks. Charring the casks twice, enhances Loch Dhu's distinct black color, and its smooth, slightly sweet flavor.
Look for a slightly smoky nose with clean layered aromas of sweet malts and notes of ripe fruit and honey. The whisky has a dry, balanced and complex finish, that is sure to please even the most jaded scotch lover.

From the Whisky pilot by Uniqum Systems :
The Mannochmore Distillery was built in 1971 on the same 25 acre (10 hectare) site as the older Glenlossie (1876).
Mannochmore does not utilise a purifier between the lyne arm and condenser as does Glenlossie.
Mothballed in 1985, but re-opened in 1989. It takes its water from the the Bardon Burn high up on Mannochmore hills.
It is situated next to Glenlossie at Thomshill on an unclassified road to the west of the A941, two miles south of Elgin.
Not often available as a single, Mannochmore is important to a number of blends, including Haig.
