This special blend 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.

Black Bull contains 50% malt whisky and 50% grain whisky and has not been chill-filtered or coloured -- it is completely natural.

 

Tasting Notes

Colour:Chestnut
Nose:Initially chocolate then a hint of turkish delights, stewed rhubarb & lime pickle. With time becomes dark cherries.
Flavour:Rich sherry notes. A big dram but also gentle at the same time. Again, more chocolate notes and some red fruits.
Finish:A cherry finish with a slight cinnamon note and obvious sherry character but there is also a faint creamy note in the background.
Comment:Quite Simply Stunning!
