Over 300 international industry judges have awarded gold medals to Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky’s acclaimed Black Bull brand of Deluxe Blended whiskies.
Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky has once again proved their Black Bull Deluxe Blends are outstanding in their field, with both the 12 and 40 year old expressions winning gold awards at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Black Bull 12 year old was commended for its ‘nose of fruit with inviting notes of apple, liquorice and vanilla….spice and fruit combined well with evident oak….in an outstanding finish’ while Black Bull 40 year old was described as having ‘…great presence and balance…great complexity with rich malts dominating hints of citrus.’
Founded in 1969, the IWSC is considered to be the oldest and most prestigious competition of its kind. Judging includes a blind tasting consisting of panels selected from over 300 fully experienced and qualified industry judges followed by a detailed chemical analysis.
Scott Watson, CEO of Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky commented:
“It’s truly fantastic to see our Black Bull brand being officially recognised. Our boldly independent spirit has been appreciated by real whisky connoisseurs since the prohibition era. Each expression of Black Bull offers a unique character, delivered by an unusually high malt to grain ratio and generations of whisky expertise. Added to recent accolades from the World Whisky Awards and Whisky Magazine, these coveted awards will help support our continued bullish growth.“
Earlier this year, Black Bull 12 year old won the World Whiskies Award for the Best Blended Whisky 12 years and under.
Established in 1938, Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky selects whiskies from distilleries throughout Scotland, bottling a range of luxury single malt and grain Scotch whiskies as well as its award winning range of blended whiskies from its base in Huntly, Aberdeenshire.
