Black Bull Kyloe released by Duncan Taylor

The Duncan Taylor Scotch whisky company has extended its Black Bull brand range with the release of Black Bull Kyloe.

Black Bull Kyloe is blended using a high ratio of malt to grain and aged in bourbon wood with a portion of sherry wood. It is bottled at 50%abv (100 US proof) without the use of chill filtration.

Black Bull brand manager Andrew Shand says: “With the new release we set out to create a very approachable whisky with a great flavour profile, which is great to drink on its own or mixed with other ingredients in a cocktail.

"As with all of the current range, we have stuck to the original formula created in 1864, that being bottled at 50% abv (100 US proof) using a high malt content in the blend and using bourbon wood with a portion of sherry wood, which with the Kyloe release, produces a rich and fruity flavour profile, with lots of oak, malt and vanilla.

“The brief for the design of the label and packaging was to incorporate old and new, to show the heritage and traditions of Black Bull while keeping the modern and current brand personality and design,” continues Shand.

“All of the label and packaging design was done in-house by our designer, and all of the blending and bottling is done at our facility in Huntly, Scotland.”

Black Bull Kyloe will be available from late November 2013 in the UK and Europe and from early December 2013 in the US.

The name Black Bull Kyloe was inspired by the hardy breed of highland cattle, the Kyloes, which, like the whisky, are “robust and with outstanding pedigree”.
