Whisky Reviews for Black Bull 30-year-old DT

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.84 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2005]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 76,50 Euro in September, 2009.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a fantastically rich sherry-driven blend.

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N- Rubbery sherry, thick, intense. Charred, oloroso.

    T- Balance, sticky dried fruits, heavy.

    F- .....Can't remember...happy ending with this after 7 wee drams from the barrels ....

    — at Warehouse No.9, Springbank

  4. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Definitely sherry colored and obviously old. In my opinion, it's very difficult to fake age in both the nose and the palate. I gave this one a solid 91, which is surprising for a blend. As good, if not better, than many older Glen Grants or Strathisla. The 50% ABV is a big plus. Impressive.

    • Finish
      Long, spicy, tobacco, chocolate

  7. HunterRomario scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Unbelievable what Duncan Taylor has managed to create for a great blend. Perhaps I'm sad about the price and availability, I'm more grateful that I could have tasted at the Whiskey Festival 2014. For me one of two highlights of the whole festival. Whoever did not, did not believe.
    • Nose
      This is a blend ?! Unbelievably rich and full of smell. Raisins, chocolate, powerful sherry, a little velvet leather. Add to it spicy, cinnamon-sweet. Oxygen orgies, no other whiskeys better at this year's festival. (92 b)
    • Taste
      Chocolate, raisins, sherry influence, full and warm taste, with skin, cinnamon and marzipan. (88 b)

  8. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    This special blend is a marriage of the

    finest single malt and single grain whiskies

    produced in Scotland. The whiskies were

    vatted together in the 1970s very soon

    after distillation and matured in sherry

    casks for a minimum 30 years resulting

    in this deluxe premium rare blend.

  9. Banzai scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Top notch blend!!
    • Nose
      Wauw, is this a blend? What a great nose! I have lots of sherry, raisins, coffee, chocolate, sweet spices, leather and tobacco.
    • Taste
      Relatively soft and creamy mouthfeel. Very pleasant. Sherry, cinnamon, chocolate and that lovely oakiness from to casks. Like that.
    • Finish
      Long finish with hints of caramel, red fruits and more spices. Some pepper on the tongue.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    Superb blend.
    • Nose
      Prune, dark cherry, raisin, milk chocolate, caramel, marzipan, date, stewed fruits, orange, red apple, vanilla, mint (which I normally only taste in whisky from bourbon casks), cinnamon, ash and nutmeg. A very complex nose for a blend.
    • Taste
      Dark cherry, prune, raisin, milk chocolate, caramel, orange, nutmeg, pepper, marzipan and salt. There's some resemblance to a vintage port as well.
    • Finish
      Raisins, cherry, milk chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, marzipan and a slight dustiness.
