Black Bull Kyloe Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)

$69. 99 Bottle
$839.88 Dozen
ABV: 50%
A whisky inspired by the hardy breed of highland cattle, the Kyloe (pronounced Kahy-loh), known to survive in the bitter windswept highlands and islands of Scotland. Blended with a high ratio of malt to grain and bottled at a hearty 50% abv, without the use of chill filtration, just like it’s namesake, this promises a robust, powerful dram.

Black Bull brand manager Andrew Shand comments “With the new release, Kyloe, 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.”

Other reviews… Kyloe is the old Scots name for the famous hairy, horned breed of Highland beef cattle, better known in Scotland as a Heilan coo. This bright NAS whisky has aromas of fresh orange, lemon, grapefruit, and light muscovado sugar. It is soft and sweet to drink, with lemon sherbet notes, some fruity piquancy, and rich butterscotch, with some peppermint creeping in on the finish.
