Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve is the only Blended Scotch whisky that is produced through a triple maturation process. This technique involves malt and grain whiskies separately aged in American bourbon barrels and subsequently blended and once again matured in Oloroso Sherry Butts for an extended duration of time.
This gives the blend a unique flavour coupled with a delicate finish. Conversely, in standard Scotch, both single malt and grain whisky are matured together.
During triple maturation, matured grain whisky and matured single malt are blended together and then aged again in sherry casks. This is the third and final step of maturation after which this whisky is bottled and sold. It’s manufactured by United Spirits Limited, a subsidiary of Diageo PLC. Following are the various characteristics of Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve whisky.
Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve blended Scotch is Amber/ enchanting antique gold coloured.
A rich balance of malt and matured wood that is delightful to the senses. Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve possesses the smoothness of butterscotch and vanilla with overtones of creamy caramel, honey, marzipan and cinnamon with a fine hint of citrus. Aroma of cracked spiced pepper can be found amidst the complex features of this whisky.
Subtle wood flavours that tease the taste buds as they slowly unravel. Sweet undertones of vanilla and caramelised peaches perfectly complement the woody taste. The complex palate of this drink is well-balanced and is highly praised by many Scotch whisky enthusiasts.
A warm, enticing finish that lingers around for quite some time providing a pleasant sensation to the throat.
Maturing the Scotch three times implies that the age of the whisky is now insignificant, although it is the drink of choice for people who prioritize smoothness over other attributes of a Scotch whisky.
