Its back, its better, its triple the age, the taste and lot more

A while ago I wrote extensively about one of the best Scotch Whisky in the world, the Black Dog, which comes in three blends, the 8 years, 12 years, the 18 years and 25 years. When I first heard about the all new Black Dog TGR, i couldn't really figure out what it was about. I mean what would Triple Gold Reserve mean? A little bit of searching around on the Internet and asking around, I figured that this was the latest addition to the Black Dog stable, that would match up or was even better than any 12 year old malt in the market.

Diving into it a little more, like you know, the Black Dog was originally was launched in 1883, with the name Millard Black Dog by James McKinley from the second generation of the Leith Scotch whisky blending family. The whisky was named by Walter Millard, a Scot from the East India Company, who brought the whisky to India. He was fond of angling, and chose to name it after his favourite salmon fishing fly, known as the Black Dog, which he used to fish in the Spey and Tay rivers in Scotland.
McDowell &Co (now known as USL) and United Distillers formed United Distillers India Limited in 1992, creating India's first joint venture in the alcoholic beverages industry. It began bottling operations in Nashik to produce Black Dog for the Indian market.
Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, as the name itself suggests, is the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process
The triple maturation process which involves Grain whiskies and Malt whiskies separately matured in American Bourbon Casks and  then blended together and matured again in Oloroso Sherry Butts for an extra longer period of time to give the blend a distinctive flavour and a delicate finish
As per the consumer research conducted on the blend of TGR, it has been appreciated and accepted as a parallel to any 12 Y.O blended scotch.
More to come about the amazing Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve. Till then enjoy your scotch to the fullest.
