It is about a quarter of that (10 to 15 sec) depending on clinical conditions.
See:
Tarr L, Oppenheimer BS, Sager RV. The circulation time in various clinical conditions determined by the use of sodium dehydrocholate. American Heart Journal, 8(6): 766-786.

does it take a minute for your blood to circulate through your whole body?
