Black Bull 12

A classic, first produced during the 1930s. Duncan Taylor took the helm in 2001 and continues to blend Black Bull from equal measures of malt and grain whisky. This is the more recently released 12 year old expression and we're thrilled to announce it picked up a Gold Medal at the 2011 International Wine and Spirit Competition!

Leave well enough alone
Is this whisky still un-chill filtered? It is not mentioned on the new black bottle label. Does not taste the same. Less tint compared to previous clear glass bottling. Cheaper sherry casks?

I have been wracking my brain to discern the difference between this bottle I am assessing and the previous ones I have drunk. Firstly, this is put up in a black shaded bottle as opposed to a clear version. There is a change in taste between the two. Ok,... ABV - same, check. Sherry casks - same?, check. 12-years-old - same, check. Un-chill Filtered...... yes on the the same canister as before but NOT on the bottle! I smell a rat and think this is it. Prove me wrong!

As described and some, very smooth and drinkable, very impressed with this dram and I think I’ll get another

First time I have tasted. Early evening aperitif. There is a richness, spicy, undertones of dried fruit coupled with long finish. This is 50%, dash of water essential to appreciate this in my view.

Slightly disappointed
Just re-visited this product in the now- Black Opaque Bottle. More "Lowlandish" imop compared to the previous clear bottling.

All in all a huge reprisal, like the gift that keeps on giving
Just picked this little gal up, just had a little swig. And i must say that i am suprised for the notes that i taste.. This little gal might become a new must have for me, on par with Macleods, glenfiddich and Ballentines.. Not to suprised about the price, for what you pay for it i can only say that it is quite the treat, a really must have

its gonna get a 5* rating
Black Bull 12. This is a blend with lots of malt proportions and from the great Duncan Taylor group. They are one of the top holders of great malts outwith the makers.

Lots of toffe and vanilla on nose plus sherried fruit.
There is treacle in this along with more fruit, vanilla again and finishing with creamy sherry.
Rather nice this and is quite full bodied.

Impressive although not cheap. I could get friendly with this.
Not keen on the black bottle tho.
still its gonna get a 5* rating...

ANGUS - by any other name?
Not an unpleasant whisky by any stretch, just a little green and under whelming.
Needs at least another 5 years in the cask/s.
