Black Bull is a marriage of the finest single malt and single grain whiskies produced in Scotland. The whiskies were vatted together in the 1970s, just after distillation, and matured in sherry casks for a minimum of 30 years, resulting in this deluxe premium rare blend. At 100 proof, the bull is a very appropriate symbol for this powerful Scottish whisky. Remaining completely natural, Black Bull contains 50% malt whisky and 50% grain whisky and is non-chill filtered or colored. Chestnut in color, Black Bull whisky tickles your nose with chocolate then a hint of turkish delights, stewed rhubarb & lime pickle and with time the scent becomes dark cherries. The 30-year-old blended whisky has a chestnut color with a flavor of rich sherry notes, a big dram but also gentle at the same time, and then you’ll taste more chocolate notes and some red fruits. Black Bull has a cherry finish with a slight cinnamon note and obvious sherry character, but there is also a faint creamy note in the background. Black Bull, bottled and distributed by the award winning Duncan Taylor & Co. in Huntly, Scotland, has an estimated retail of $199. The first batch to arrive will be limited to 600 bottles.
