Two of the variants of Black Dog Scotch Whisky which are very rare are the Black Dog 21 years old Scotch (also known as Black Dog Quintessence Scotch) and Black Dog 18 years old Scotch (also known as Black Dog Reserve Scotch). I would be explaining today about the reason why Black Dog Quintessence is a collector’s item and is a luxury vintage limited edition Scotch variant of the Black Dog. Black Dog 21 years old Scotch Whisky continues the legacy of its founder, Sir Walter Millard by creating a Scotch Whisky that embodies years for perfection. Hand crafted by renowned Master Blender Richard Paterson to create an impeccable, sophisticated & luxurious Scotch whisky, The Black Dog 21 years old is indeed pure liquid gold. Only 25 of the finest single malts and grain whiskies have been drawn from the highland region of Scotland, in particular from the beautiful Speyside Valley to provide that special finesse. The result: only 3540 limited edition bottles of pure mesmeric luxury exist worldwide! Black Dog Quintessence is available in key markets in India in the price range of Rs.12000-16500 (depending on State pricing policies).
The best way to enjoy the Black Dog 21 Year Old is to allow it to rest on your palate for 21 seconds. This will allow you to experience all its hidden nuances, say Scotch aficionados. The recently launched limited edition Scotch whisky from the Black Dog luxury portfolio comes from United Breweries’ USL stable. Like I mentioned before, 25 of the finest single malts and grain whiskies from the Speyside Valley of Scotland are matured and aged in Oloroso sherry butts from Spanish Bodegas for 21 years. The result is an intense amber, gold colored Scotch with shimmering highlights. The aromas are a bouquet of soft peaches, ripe citrus fruits, pear, marzipan and bergamot. On the palate, you get the taste of Seville oranges, ripe sweet mangoes and ginger spice with a lingering after taste of bitter chocolate, liquorice and crushed almonds.
Talking about Black Dog 21 years old Scotch Whisky, Ashok Capoor, President and Managing Director of United Spirits Limited said to the media, â€œThe launch of Black Dog 21 YO augurs well for our scotch footprint and our ability to offer a complete and more robust Black Dog franchise from the regular to the luxury Scotch segment.” Have you tried your hand at tasting yet?
