Black Bull 40 Year Old, the flagship of the Black Bull range is a superior blend of the finest Single Malt and Single Grain whiskies available from Scotlandâ€™s premium Distilleries. The spirit in this second bottling of Black Bull 40 contains whiskies ranging from 40 to 44 years old from the following distilleries: Bunnahabhain, Glenlivet, Tamdhu and Invergordon.
Black Bull 40 year old is 90% single malt and 10% single grain and is bottled at cask strength. The spirit is completely natural, without chill filtration or added colourant.
Full of fruits, dark cherries, peaches in syrup, figs, oranges, cantaloupe melon, honey off the comb, cooking apples.
Thick mouth feel, balanced fresh woodiness shows maturity yet is still vibrant. More citrus notes emerge before the sherry notes come through. Raisins, stewed fruits, pain au chocolat.
Long finish for something so delicate, touch of saltiness. Chocolate and then background fruitiness fights to the fore.
What a dram, sip and savour and watch the world go by as this whisky changes and changes
