Knowing when to pause is an art – a precious moment to stop, take stock and reconnect before moving forward. Black Dog’s founder Sir Walter Millard mastered this art of pausing through his passion for fly fishing, resulting in the creation of what we know as Black Dog Scotch Whisky, a liquid matured in its fullness of time. As a tribute to its founder, Black Dog Millard’s Private Reserve 14YO is born out of that sense of pausing and a thirst to bring alive a perfectly balanced scotch by carefully aging it for 14 years, no more, no less.
A rare, complex, yet incomparably smooth blend, you can discover delicate hints of vanilla and lightly toasted oak in the Black Dog Millard’s Private Reserve 14YO. Gentle underlying citrus flavor from the 200-year-old Linkwood distillery located in the heart of Speyside accentuates the taste profile of Black Dog.
Millard’s Private Reserve 14YO sports a modernized distinct appearance cueing a superior sense of stature with a taller and leaner look. The pack design displays a tasteful brand crest that references its connection to the Leith family of distilleries – The Royalty of Scotch Blenders, a new icon representing the brand’s roots and its founder Sir Walter Millard’s passion for fly fishing. Encased beneath a legacy foil commemorating its founder’s signature is a rare, top-notch quality cork made of natural wood, adding a supremely premium touch to the liquid consumption experience.
The Black Dog Millard’s Private Reserve 14YO is a new addition to the world of Black Dog and was exclusively unveiled by Saif Ali Khan.
Nose: Rich sweet-soft matured wood, malty, fruity and creamy notes. Mild at first; rich and dense, with traces of spice and sweet wood from extra oak aging.
Taste: Smooth, with lightly toasty oak, which becomes more mellow if water is added. Well balanced, with the peppery spice leaving a spicy tingle and creamy, violet-scented with medium to long finish.
Enjoy Black Dog 14YO Millard’s Private Reserve by letting it sit for 14seconds which symbioses 14 years of maturation. This is the perfect time to pause and let the flavors imbue together in harmony for that perfect sip of a well-balanced whisky.
