New 100-proof Scotch blend arrives

The newest blended whisky from Scotland hit our shores this month, when Black Bull was introduced at a special tasting in Manhattan.

The 100-proof expression is new to the Black Bull line, although its predecessors have been sold in the U.S. and U.K. for about 70 years. Black Bull whiskies are bottled and distributed by Duncan Taylor & Co. of Huntly, Scotland.

The limited edition is a 50-50 blend of non-chill filtered single malt and single grain whiskies aged in sherry casks for a minimum of 30 years.

The tube and bottle feature an original painting of a black bull by Scottish artist Angela Davidson.

The suggested retail price: $199, and the first batch to arrive has been limited to 600 bottles.
