Scotch Whisky - Deluxe Blend - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
What's in a name? Black Bull 12 Year Old (Duncan Taylor) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Black Bull 12 Year Old (Duncan Taylor) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Sweetness, cereals, berry fruits, nutty, tangy, spices, cocoa.
Palate: Thick and rounded. Nutty and soft with orchard fruits and cream.
Finish: Thick and fruity, hint of under-ripe fruits now, creamy.
Great taste especially at 100 proof!!!

Bought a bottle of this from that taste of Grampian 2012, saving it for a special occasion, can't wait to crack the bottle open! The taster was amazing, I've forgotten just how good though!

This is a particularly good blend - bottled at 50%abv so maybe a wee touch of water to open things up. Has won a fair number of awards recently - I can see why.
