Black Bull 12 Year (Duncan Taylor)
Duncan Taylor Black Bull // Scotland
Black Bull is an older whisky brand from the 1930's resurrected in 2001 by Duncan Taylor, the company behind this blended whisky. It is comprised of 50% malted whisky and 50% grain whisky, which is quite a healthy dose of malt for a blend. It is also bottled at 50% abv and un-chill filtered.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"This whisky shows a nice blend of fruit and malt. Dried cherry, apples, and sea salt are found on the palate along with vanilla and just a touch of peat smoke and dried grass. The finish is full of caramel popcorn, baking spices, and more dried fruits. "
