By Mark Watt aged... well too young really.

One of the highlights of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2012 was Black Bull 40 Years Old Batch 3 created by Mark Watt.  This is still not available.  This whisky was shown at the Duncan Taylor tasing hosted by owner Euan Shand.

During the tasting the assemble audience jointly created the following tasting note:


Granny Smith apples (not the person), mint and melon.  Pear drops, acid drops and All Spice (due to indecision).  And cut grass.  Brown sugar, candy, caramel and a hunk of Kiwi (the fruit not a person).


Crunchie (the chocolate bar with a toffee crisp centre).  More mint.  Dark chocolate orange running to coffee (apologies to DL).  A soft dry smokiness.  Sugared nuts (the nut variety), pineapple, toffee, may be even pineapple toffee.  Aniseed and cinnamon.


We had to before we could come up with one.
