Black Bull, a new blended whisky from Scotland, is a marriage of the finest single malt and the best single grain whiskies left to mature in sherry casks for a minimum of 30 years. The bull is an appropriate symbol for this powerful 100 proof spirit. Black Bull contains 50% malt whisky and 50% grain whisky and is non-chill filtered or colored – it remains completely natural. The color is a deep chestnut hue with a sweet nose of chocolate, Turkish delight, stewed rhubarb, and lime pickle. The flavor, full with rich sherry notes, has a surprising gentleness with accents of red fruits and a finish of a slight cinnamon note. The tube and bottle feature an original painting of a black bull by Scottish artist Angela Davidson. Black Bull, bottled and distributed by the award winning Duncan Taylor & Co, Huntly, Scotland, has an estimated retail of $199, and the first batch to arrived will be limited to 600 bottles.
