Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve–Tasting Notes

In continuation to my previous post, Black Dog Triple Gold has its own tasting notes. While we may discover some of the ingredients, an average human cannot discern more than 30% of the ingredients that go into anything, well, unless he has made it himself. While you try to get all the juicy details that may have gone into making the scotch, below are the tasting notes of my favorite Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve.

NOSE: Lovely balance of matured wood and rich malt touches the senses. Smoothness of Vanilla and butterscotch are skillfully embedded on layers of honey, creamy caramel, cinnamon and marzipan with a subtle hint of citrus fruits. Delicate aromas of cracked spiced pepper are perceived even in the rich complexity of the blend.

PALATE: Elegant wood flavors caress the palate as they slowly unfold. Sweet whispers of caramelized peaches and vanilla add to the complexity of wood elements. Even in its intriguing complexity, all flavors are wonderfully balanced with a delicate spread of medium sweetness at the end.

Now while you wonder what could have gone into making the Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve “The Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve”, let me add that it is no simple process! While the whisky is a blend of Single Malt and Single Grain Whisky, the maturation process and the art of blending followed is entirely different. No longer is the whisky subject to an age statement. The single malt and single grain are matured separately in Red Oak Bourbon casks. Once they reach maturity, the scotch is blended by a master blender who holds the secret running in his family heirloom since time immemorial. image

This blended scotch is once again left to mature in a Oloroso Sherry Casks. This triple process of maturing not only brings out a uniqueness to it, but also brings out a lot of flavors that would have otherwise gone unknown or unnoticed!
