Black Bull 21 Year (Duncan Taylor)
Duncan Taylor Black Bull // Scotland
Black Bull 21 Year is a blend of malt and grain whiskies (ratio 55% malt to grain). These are selected mainly from distilleries in the Scottish Highlands, with some Speyside and Islay for additional character. Aged in oak (unspecified which kind), the youngest whisky in the blend is 21 years old.
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.
"The sweet, creamy and cereal-like character of this scotch reminds of a soothing bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon sprinkled on top. A good hit of vanilla and oak with some brown sugar, orange zest and cashew nuts add to the experience. The finish is a tad abrupt, but not entirely rude."
