A premium blended Scotch for Rugby-players and manly-men.

Duncan Taylor & Co. was founded in 1938 as a cask broker — an agent for competing distilleries and blended Scotch companies. Soon, they started showing up at distilleries with their own casks to have them filled on site. All the while they built up one of the largest privately-held collections of rare casks. In 2001, experienced industry veteran Euan Shand purchased the company and expanded into a series of new brands and blends to complement their rare cask business with six single malts, two blended malts, three blended Scotches, two Rums, and one Gin.

The Black Bull brand goes all the way back to 1864 when George Willshire developed a custom blend to sell in his retail shop in Dundee, Scotland. He followed a simple 50/50/50 recipe — 50% fine Single Malt, 50% premium Scottish grain Whisky, and bottle at 50% ABV. As they say, “No bull, just Whisky.” This formula worked and by 1974 they were exporting a million bottles per year to the United States alone. There are now seven products in the Black Bull line, and Black Bull 12 YO is the core offering — a blend of classic Highland single alts and Lowland grains married in ex-Bourbon casks for a full twelve years of maturation.
