Scotch appreciation

Photographs from Black Dog Scotch appreciation event...

 Black Dog 18 Year Old Scotch Whisky

Tasting Notes

Color: Deep, golden, glossy and mahogany.
Nose: A truly noble bouquet of luscious malty tones and rich velvety textures with a hint of oloroso sherry in the background.
Taste:   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.
Finish: Luxuriously smooth and long, a testament to the malt & grain whiskies which have spent years in oak casks & vats.

Black Dog 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky

Tasting Notes

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.
Palate: 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.

Black Dog Centenary Scotch Whisky

Tasting Notes

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.

  5. I don't drink (anymore), so the whiskey's not for me....But let me tell you....the food looks super and the people in your post are some of the most beautiful!

  6. I'm sure that aged Scotch tastes even more beautiful than it looks! Thanks for sharing these images with Photo Art Friday, Shiju.

  7. I rarely drink but after reading these descriptions I think that if I were to drink then I might would like to try one of these. And the picture of food looks so good and definitely would like to try it.

  10. Looks like an interesting event. I like the PAF photo, such a pensive expression. I agree with Bonnie about how rich and golden the Scotch looks. Also those meatballs look quite tasty.

  12. Based on your thumbnail, I thought that woman holding a glass of Black Dog was your subject for "The Beauty of Aging." And I was intrigued. I thought that was rather bold of her to accept aging :)

    Nonetheless, beautiful images you got!


    Hopping from Photo Art Friday.
