Black Dog Quintessence 21 Years old Scotch Whisky.
The Black Dog 21 years old is indeed pure liquid gold. Hand crafted to meticulous perfection by our Master Blender. Only 25 of the finest single malts and grain whiskies have been drawn from the Highland region of Scotland, in particular from the beautiful Speyside Valley to provide that special key - "finesse". Like a loving partnership each individual part has made its own inimitable contribution. Balance and harmony prevails throughout this noble elegant spirit. Thanks to a long marrying period in the finest Oloroso sherry butts this has only been achieved. Aged in the finest Oloroso sherry for minimum of 30 years these Matusalem butts provide the perfect platform to marry and mould our Black Dog 21 years old Blended Scotch Whisky.
