Black Bull 40 is a high-end blended whisky expression, blended by Duncan Taylor, and has been on the market for a few years now , now reaching batch #7 if I am not mistaken. It’s essentially 90% blended malts (from Glenfarclas, Springbank, Glenlivet, Highland Park, Bunnahabhain, Tamdhu, Miltonduff) and 10% Grain from Invergordon, all above 40 years old. I’ve tasted bacth #2 quite a long time ago back in 2011 (my notes here), and loved it. Hopefully batch #4 will be as good. The latest batch (#7) sells for over 500 quid on MOM, and I’ve seen it priced even higher on other shops, which makes this Batch #4 quite the bargain. My mate Sjoerd has written a rather interesting post ranting about the price hike for the latest batches, have a look here.
Luckily i bought a sample of #4 batch which i could afford, and we’re going to review that shortly.
