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.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Great! Charge your Bull!!!
This is a good scotch. Smokey but with enough other flavors to make it delicious
Huge fan of this one. Love the caramel and oak touch. For the content, this scotch is very smooth.
A very decent dram with up front oak and caramel malt. Some chocolate and dark fruit but not prominent. A touch of leather emerged mid-palate (for the rugby players, no doubt). Flavors forward with a warm burn that lasts a bit. As a 12 year, while the Flaviar price is competitive, the price point generally seems high compared with some other 12 year blends even with the higher proof. Nevertheless, glad to add it to my home bar.
Wow! This is very smooth considering the higher abv. Notes are as described. Might be my new "go-to" scotch.
Love it, tasting notes spot on
