Black Bull 12 Year Old
Duncan Taylor


A younger blended Scotch of distinction, this Bull gets our attention immediately. Featuring a 50 percent grain and 50 percent barley mash, it charges with a complex nose that speaks to the United Kingdom's traditional foods such as biscuits, fruitcake and buttered brown bread, plus a honeyed nuttiness. The palate is a shocking departure from the nose as raisins, plums, smoke, orange rind, chocolate and a hint of olives emerge. It finishes with a simple, sweet nuttiness.

Price: $55
