Black Dog 12. Image courtesy United Spirits. This blended Scotch is produced for the Indian market, where it’s a top seller. The nose is smooth with mild spicy notes of ginger, cinnamon, honey, vanilla, and touches of oak and lemon zest. The taste is syrupy with a strong cinnamon bite that builds up quickly. Honey, vanilla, and black tea with lemon notes become apparent as the spice fades. The finish lingers with honey, black tea and lemon notes with a lingering cinnamon spice. (May, 2013)
