When it comes to a finely aged Scotch, I am constantly reminded of a truly strange, albeit very real, story.
The year was 2009. It was late September when my father had a fall from the stairs. 
Generally people roll down stairs and break their legs, but did my dad do that?
Nope.
Like the Original he is in real life, he had to fall off from a height, cracking his head open. My younger sister, M, was there to witness that.
And everyone came running to help, to give aid. But my sister, the practical head of the family, told the rest that it would take a good alcohol to make sure the wound stayed clean. And the next thing we know, she went upstairs, got my father’s favorite 21-year-old Scotch, and upended the nearly full bottle on my father’s head. 
Every last drop of it, while we all watched, fascinated.
Of course, we took him to the hospital reeking of alcohol, but well, it apparently saved his life. But we all feared a heart attack after seeing what had happened to his precious, 21-year old Scotch, when he would return home.
With the triple distillation procedure, however, Black Dog has overcome one issue at least – the Triple Gold Reserve Blend tastes as good as, if not better than most other scotches in the range, and aging for long periods of time has truly stopped mattering with the help of the right blend and the right maturation procedure. In fact, Triple Gold Reserve has been called a very smooth, extremely rounded and well balanced tipple, perfect for some relaxation.  
So, when there is a triple matured scotch like Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, age really does not matter anymore, when there is a fine balance in mixing and maturing for just the right amount of time.
