Black Bull 12 Year
True to its heritage and truly different to the norm, Black Bull 12 year old blended Scotch whisky is bottled at a higher strength and contains a higher malt whisky content than most of the blended Scotch whiskies available today. Using only the highest quality malt and grain whisky from select distilleries in Scotland, matured in the finest sherry and bourbon casks, Black Bull 12 year old is blended to a formula of 50% malt to 50% grain whisky, and bottled at 50% abv (100 US proof), for a full-on flavour experience which will rampage all over your senses. This robust but versatile blend can be drunk neat, with water, or as a component of cocktails.
Black Bull is draped in history. The blend can trace its origins back to 1864, when it was first produced by George Willsher & Co in Dundee, Scotland, and with the repeal of prohibition in the 1930’s, Black Bull really came to prominence in
markets around the world. Black Bull continues to be available in markets worldwide and is blended and bottled, with care, by the award winning Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Ltd.
