One of my close friends is in love with Black Dog. Her choice of drink, the moment she hits the bar, is either Black Dog Black Reserve, or Black Dog Reserve Aged 18 Years. She just refuses to drink other brands most of the times, because she tells me, her choice of poison is mighty fine, and she is loyal to it.
The new generation of Scotch Whiskey drinkers loves Black Dog. There is, of course, a number of questions that comes to the mind when it comes a good blend of booze – but Black Dog, in every way possible, has outweighed most other brands with its unique charm. Apart from the fact that they have something for everyone – the brand has come up with a series of good blends which an individual can get a taste for, very easily.
Like my friend, who truly prefers Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve to any other 12 year old Scotch available in the market today.
Now why do you think that is the case?
Well, truthfully speaking, most other brands of Scotch rely heavily on the maturing procedure, where the sign of a good scotch is the number of years it has been aged. However, aging a particular whiskey in a cask means letting the flavors of the cask seep into the whiskey, slowly but surely. However, that might get slightly uni-dimensional, where only a particular set of flavors, obtained from a particular kind of cask, is infused into the booze.
But, with Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, two distinct kinds of whiskey – grain whiskey and malt whiskey, matured in bourbon casks, are blended together, and further matured in Oloroso sherry butts, which means, a three-way infusion of flavors that truly hits the senses of the younger generation, who love discovering the flavors and taste of a good blend, and slowly analyze them. That is why this is becoming one of the most loved blends which youngsters are turning towards more than the rest.
