Black Dog Tasting. A few Notes to Share


As told in the earlier post,  One of the world’s finest Scotch Whisky Black Dog Scotch Whisky comes in 4 different variants:-

  • Quintessence 21 Year Old Scotch Whisky Reserve
  • 18 Year Old Scotch-whisky
  • 12 Year Old Deluxe Scotch-whisky
  • Centenary Aged and Rare Scotch



As a food blogger I was fortunate to taste all the 4 different variants and here are some tasting notes of the same.

Quintessence 21 Year Old Scotch Whisky:-

 Color – intense amber gold with shimmering highlights

Aroma:-  A harmony of delight orchestrated by a multitude of seductive aromas immediately arouse the senses. Soft peaches and ripe citrus fruits coupled with pear, marzipan and bergamot begin this flirtatious fanfare. The aged malt whiskies from the Speyside valley make their own inimitable contribution by adding that distinctive charm and finesse.



Palate:-  Bold and magnificent.
This outstanding blend must be given the reverence and respect it richly deserves. For twenty one year’s these aged single malts and grain scothch whiskies have remained dormant in the cold dark warehouses before they were finally blended together by our master Blender.
Therefore the spirit must be held long on the palate for at least twenty one seconds to awaken its many hidden attributes. Like a rare masterpiece it will reveal its inner beauty. It’s inner world. Intense flavors of Seville oranges, ripe sweet mangoes and ginger spice reward the palate, and then whispers of bitter chocolate, liquorices and crushed almonds drift lovingly on.

Reserve 18 Year Old Scotch-whisky.

Color:- Deep, golden, glossy and mahogany

Aroma:- A truly noble bouquet of luscious malty tones and rich velvety textures with a hint of oloroso
sherry in the background.



Palate:- Round and mellow complex quixotic flavours with an impeccable balance of individual malt and grain whiskies and silky soft tones that dance on the tongue.

The Finish: Luxuriously smooth and long, a testament to the malt & grain whiskies which have spent years in oak casks & vats.

12 Year Old Deluxe Scotch-whisky:-

Color : Amber, with golden highlights.

Aroma : Robust malty, mellow woody, complex yet delicate aroma of sherry and vanillic sweetness with whispers of soft peatiness in the background.



The Taste: Beautifully rounded, heavy body, pronounced malty, mellow woody, fruity sweetness with teasing light warm peat.

Finish: Luxurious and exciting, long and warm with a touch of cream.

Centenary Aged and Rare Scotch:-

Color : Amber with golden highlights.

Aroma : Matured wood, toasted malt, mild honey sweetness, delicate butterscotch bordering on cream, with floral nuances that emerges at the end.



Palate : Robust body, pronounced rich malt and oak and sherry sweetness, spreads warmly in the mouth like silent sea waves.

Finish : Balanced, long, intense and bright.
