The whisky family and the journey of Black Dog – Triple Gold reserve

We know that black bog is one of the finest and most premium whiskies ever made.I am sure not many of you are aware of the types of whisky that are available.

There are a number of classifications of Scotch whisky, but the main ones are:

Blended Whisky: This is a mis-match of the grain whisky and malt whisky and the most commonly made whiskies across the globe.

Blended Malt Whisky:It is made from blends of single malt whiskies from across Scotland and they are also known as “Vatted Malts” or “Pure Malts”.

Single Grain Whisky: This one is not so commonly found and is made from corn.

Single Malt Whisky: This is made,from malted barley grains from a single distillery. They’re often sold with age which means that they are a blend of single malts from the same distillery where the youngest whisky used is the age stated on the bottle, unless it is a single cask bottle where the whisky must all be from the same making.


Black Dog Scotch Whisky has a tradition of over 130 years but you would be amazed to know that Scotch Whisky has been in existence since almost 1494 when it evolved from a Scottish drink called ‘uisge beatha’, which means “lively water” or “water of life”. Distillation of Scotch Whisky was well established by the late fifteenth century as you can see from the earliest mentions of Scotch Whisky which talked about distilling over 1,500 bottles.

Sotch Whisky Produced at a distillery in Scotland from water and malted barley,Wholly matured in an excise warehouse in Scotland in oak casks of a capacity not exceeding 700 litres
Retaining the colour, aroma, and taste of the raw materials used in, and the method of, its production and maturation Containing no added substances, other than water and plain caramel colouring

Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, as the name itself suggests, is the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process.

The triple maturation process which involves Grain whiskies and Malt whiskies separately matured in American Bourbon Casks and then blended together and matured again in Oloroso Sherry Butts for an extra longer period of time to give the blend a distinctive flavour and a delicate finish.
