Come September and a unique experience and whisky awaits Indian palates. The launch of Black Dog 21 YO will add more choice for the consumer and more teeth for UB group. Black Dog 21 YO will battle it out with Royal Salute 21 YO and Johnie Walker Blue Label. The latest vintage variant from Black Dog’s luxury portfolio marries years of good whisky with fine craftsmanship to give the Black Dog range a new expression and weight at the top.
A Black Dog 21 YO spokesperson says, “Hand crafted to meticulous perfection by the renowned master blender Richard Paterson himself, Black Dog 21 YO continues the legacy of its founder, Sir Walter Millard, promising an out of the ordinary experience for scotch lovers.
Twenty five of the finest single malts and grain whiskies have been drawn from the highland region of Scotland, in particular from the beautiful Seaside Valley to provide that special ‘finesse’. A long marrying period in the finest Dolorosa sherry butts specially selected from Spain’s noblest Bodegas of Gonzalez Bypass in Jerez de la Frontera, ensures a sherry feel and depth of character.
Ashok Capoor, president and managing director of United Spirits Limited (USL) said, “We are extremely proud to introduce one of our most awaited luxury labels—Black Dog 21 YO, a vintage and smooth luxury scotch by USL. Balance and harmony prevails throughout this noble elegant spirit. Aged in the finest Oloroso sherry for minimum of 30 years, the Matusalem butts provide the perfect platform to marry and mould our Black Dog 21 years old blended scotch whisky.”
The Black Dog 21 YO is a harmony of delight orchestrated by a multitude of seductive aromas that immediately arouse the senses. Soft peaches and ripe citrus fruits coupled with pear, marzipan and bergamot begin this flirtatious fanfare. The taste is bold and magnificent. Intense flavours 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. It is aged for 21 years. The spirit must be held long on the palate for at least twenty one seconds to awaken the many hidden attributes of this liquid gold. Sip and take pleasure in the definitive expression of Black Dog 21 YO!
Only 3540 bottles of this impeccable and sophisticated vintage scotch are available across the world giving it a supreme place in every connoisseurs list of favorites. Priced between Rs 14,000-17,000 per unit, the Black Dog 21 YO will be available in NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Punjab, Chandigarh, Goa and Bangalore.
