Black Bull 12 year old by Duncan Taylor surprised me big time! I expected a much lower score from this blended whisky.

Though the name implies bit more. Black Bull 12 yrs is definitely black: it is dark in every way and I like it. But it's no bull. More like a horse. It has power but not in bull kinda way.

Make sure to use some water with this blend.

Nose: Smoke fades away from the first wiff. Very sweet at the start, bit peaty with sherry, pears and sweet berries.

Taste: Thick stuff! Creamy and dark toffee dominates. Dark fruits, everything is dark. 2 drops of water made it like espresso.

Finish: Raw chocolate and roasted coffee.

Balance: Water opens up Black Bull 12 yrs nicely. Very fine blend!
