Twitter is a great way to discover new whisky. Having followed Black Bull Whisky for a while, it’s great to finally taste their whisky (12 Year Old review coming soon). Kyloe (pronounced Kahy-loh) is a selection of Speyside malts matured in bourbon and sherry casks and blended with aged grain. It packs an impressive punch at 50% ABV.
Appearance: Amber Glow
Aroma: Fresh green apples covered in toffee. Orange peel and oak notes.
Taste: Smooth with a huge of hit of chocolate, as this develops there are hints of fruit and nuts. There is a slight spice tingle on the tip of the tongue, before leaving with a lovely smooth and creamy finish, with the subtle vanilla undertones.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with light spice.
Overall: This whisky is great value at around the £20 mark and i’m not sure you’ll find a better blend in this price range. Despite the 50% ABV this is a smooth creamy whisky that will be great dram to recommend to people starting their whisky journey. It’s also going to impress whisky veterans as well. I’ll be picking up a bottle to add to my collection soon!
