Duncan Taylor's wonderful Black Bull blended Scotch whisky range welcomes a new member, a robust and full-bodied peated edition. Expect notes of dry, earthy smoke here, blending handsomely with juicy orchard fruit and layers of toffee sweetness.
Nose: Through sea salt and bonfire smoke comes brown sugar, orchard fruit and rich malt.
Palate: Stewed apples, toffee and lemon peel lead among earthy peat, roasted salt nuts and a little cinnamon.
Finish: Some salty and smoky notes linger.
