Huntly; January 6th, 2014 – From the award-winning Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Company and Black Bull brand comes Kyloe, a brand new release to add to the Black Bull fold.
Kyloe (pronounced Kahy-loh) is inspired by the hardy breed of highland cattle, the Kyloe, known to survive in the bitter windswept highlands and islands of Scotland. Black Bull Kyloe shares much of its likeness with this great breed – robust and with outstanding pedigree.
Kyloe is blended using the finest malt and grain whisky, at a high ratio of malt to grain, and bottled at a hearty 50% abv, without the use of chill filtration, to offer a bold, authentic and powerful sensory experience.
Black Bull brand manager Andrew Shand said “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.”
Andrew Shand continued “This is a very exciting release as we had access to fantastic whiskies in the Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky cask stock portfolio, and we had free rein to create an exceptionally well balanced and flavoursome blend. The whiskies we have used to create the blend are some of the most highly rated in Scotland, and to be able to choose from some of the highest quality bourbon and sherry wood allows us to offer a blend that is very special.”
Black Bull Kyloe is available to buy now worldwide.
