Black Bull 40 Editors ChoiceBlack Bull 40yo 41.6% Batch 3 – WINNER of Whisky Magazine’s Editors Choice Issue 109, March 2013!!

Martine’s Tasting Notes:

Nose: Grassy, floral and biscuity.  meadow-sweet flowers, dry hay.  Oat biscuits.  Enticing and light.  Opens on citrus notes.  Lemon posset.  Stays floral all the way.

Palate: Very smooth.  Beeswax, rich honey, custard, candied lemon.  Rich, complex and luscious.

Finish: Lingering, drying on ginger dust.

Comments: A classic old Speysider? Mature and lively at the same time.  Really a perfect achievement.

Score: 8.9

Rob’s Tasting Notes:

Nose: Instantly spice laden, fragrant jasmine rice, green tea, caramel wafers, cardamom seeds before you crush them.  A hint of white chocolate as well.

Palate: Honey sweetness, silky, a fruity note of ripe mango and peaches.  There is a nice oak grip.

Finish: The oak grips with a gentle spice layer at the end.

Comments: Nice stuff, well-balanced and intriguing.

Score: 8.5
