The Black Bull 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky Blend is made from rich and robust highland and speyside malt whiskies. Matured in European oak refill sherry butts and American oak refill bourbon hogsheads, the whiskies are blended together with lowland grain and then matured for 12 years in ex-bourbon refill American Oak barrels, at a ratio of 50% malt to 50% grain and bottled at a powerful 50% ABV.
The Black Bull 12 Year Old is a deep Amber in colour with a powerful nose of red fruits, cherry, toffee, sherry and a subtle hint of vanilla. The palate offers flavours of creamy chocolate, fruit and honey with apple and an expressive nuttiness. The finish is long, silky and well balanced with a buttery toffee edge.
