Professional Life–unwinding myself

Professional life is tough on me and others who have chosen it. As with others, we have to balance professional life with personal life. A fine balance has to be struck if the life has to be smooth.


There are lots of pre-sales activities at work, mid-year appraisal and other things around the corner. There is also a career fast-tracking for which I have been nominated. All these have come together and is giving me a tough time altogether. On the personal front, I have my wedding anniversary lined up next week.

All the activities were to be taken up with care as it would have definitely affected my personal as well as professional career. After the day ended, I decided to head to my favorite place and ordered Black Dog TGR – the newest kid in town from the Black Dog stable.

When I ordered, I got to know few things about TGR. It is a luxury blend of some of the finest aged malt and grain whiskies, and makes a strong statement of its glorious lineage. These whiskies have been meticulously selected and nurtured to age slowly in the American distillery run Bourbon casks in Scotland. These are then blended together, matured and married in Olorosso Sherry Casks that gives this nature to the blend.

I decided to enjoy with TGR and started to feel the aroma of it. It had a lovely balance of matured wood and the rich malt touches the senses. Smoothness of Vanilla and Butterscotch are skillfully embedded on layers of honey, creamy caramel, cinnamon and marzipan with a subtle hint of citrus fruits. We get cracked spiced pepper are also perceived.

Finally decided to take the sip of it. Elegant wood flavors caress the palate as they slowly unfold. Sweet whispers of caramelized peaches and vanilla add to the complexity of the wood elements. Everything is evenly balanced and gives medium sweet flavor in the end.

After having TGR, it gave me a relaxed mind and released a lot of pressure of me. Definitely an evening which helped me unwind myself.
