We Indians have a palate for strong flavours. We love our chilli, garam masala and garlic. There is no question that when it comes to beverages we like our spirits, and especially Scotch whisky more than anything else. Funny thing is that when it comes to our whisky, we appreciate the subtle aromas, and its elegant taste.
Premium Scotch whisky goes great with spicy lamb curry and chicken kebabs which have considerably flashy flavours, and especially the honey smoothness of Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve whisky contrasts and complements curry and lamb beautifully. It is probably our understanding of kaleidoscopic flavours of our spice mixtures that we can tell and appreciate the complex flavours veiled in this Luxury Scotch whisky.
We Indians have huge family gatherings, and every once in six months we meet a bunch of people that we barely know, to get together to drink, eat and celebrate something. I don’t know about you, but this is what happens in my paternal side of the family twice every year. Most women are closet drinkers, enjoying their Black Dog in opaque glasses covered with a napkin and showing off their jewellery in the party.
The men are usually busy piling up their plates with rice and curry, laughing and cracking jokes about their wives. It is usually a fun night, highlighted by a favourite whisky served by the host. The last two gatherings, we had to pause the fun to order some more bottles of the new Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve. Everyone had their expert opinion on why those they liked it, but they all liked it. This whisky matches their standards, it is a branded as a premium, luxury Scotch whisky, they like the aftertaste and it is suited for their sophisticated style.
Black Dog TGR has a sweet background, the woodiness was really boosted by the tandoor cooked lamb seekh kebabs, and that combination was a big hit. We are creatures of habit, and Black Dog is a trusted brand with familiar hints. This time around we are having the family gathering at our place. I intend to stock up a few extra bottles in my closet, hoping that I can save one for myself this weekend.
