About Black Dog:
The birth of the great whisky took place more than 125 years ago when James McKinley from the second generations of the Leith Scotch-whisky blending family launched the masterful whisky by the name of Sir Walter Millard's favorite fishing fly, The Black Dog. It is said that in the year 1883 Sir Walter Millard, a Scot who was an extensive traveler came searching for the perfect Scotch and eventually discovered the great taste of whisky in these misty shores of Scotland. Today Black Dog is savored as a Scotch-whisky distilled, matured and blended in the lowland regions of Scotland. After more than 125 years every time-honored process is followed the same way to produce the impeccable blend of robust, yet smooth Scotch-whisky which is relished as an intricate fusion of delicate tones and soft aromas. Available in 3 enchanting blends – 18 Year Old Reserve Scotch-whisky, 12 Year Old Deluxe Scotch-whisky and Centenary Scotch-whisky.
Black Dog Reserve 18 YO is the winner of the Best in Class Gold at the International Wine and Spirit Competition held in the UK recently.
