Black Bull 12yo | 50.0% | Blend
Meet #6 | 15/01/11 | Hosted by Russell
It was Blends Night at the Southside Whisky Club and we stupidly decided to review this whisky after sinking 2 other bottles.. slight carnage.
Rich, sweet and fruity, like a journey on the fruit-train from bananas to raisins via grapefruit (all fruit-trains pass through grapefruit). Apple and brandy notes combine into, well, apple brandy.
Sweet, rich and spicy. All the ingredients of an early December party: dried fruits, orange peel and spice for the mince pies washed down with mulled wine and port. Petunias, chocolate and fudge with a lingering autumn mulch. Do you have to let it linger? (no cranberries, though).
Finish & Comments
A long syrupy, salty, spicy, Lidl Christmas biscuity finish. Shove that down your air-hole.
