john mclaughlinBlack Dog Easy Evenings are always the talk of the town and rightly so because of the wonderful experience the audiences have in these events. The Black Dog Easy Evenings are events hosted across the nation. Guitar saw the magical blend of music and Scotch. Guitar legends like Dylan Fowler, Frank Wingold, Dave Goodman and Eric Morel Vaarzon graced the easy evening occasions in the past years with their soulful music and soul stirring talent.

This year, guitar legend John McLaughlin was touring Asia for the first time in 5 years, and this time with his current and longest standing band – The 4th Dimension, featuring multi-instrumentalist Gary Husband on Piano and drums, bassist `extra-ordinaire` Etienne M`Bappe, and powerhouse Indian drummer Ranjit Barot. Before the event, John said – Asia has been such a big part of my life and I am truly excited to come with the 4th Dimension. The band played pieces from their last studio album Now Here This, which won rave reviews globally and their latest live CD The Boston Record, recorded during the band`s American Summer Tour in 2013 at Berklee Peformance Center in Boston. The tour kicked off in Singapore on March 11, 2014 and made stops in Hong Kong, Thailand, Philippines, Korea, Japan, China, India and ended with a Solidarity Concert in Palestine on April 9.

Along with the music the audience where offered variants of Black Dog Scotch, one of them is the Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process. The triple maturation process which involves Grain whiskies and Malt whiskies separately matured in American Bourbon Casks and then blended together and matured again in Oloroso Sherry Butts for an extra longer period of time to give the blend a distinctive flavour and a delicate finish. The marriage of guitar and scotch was truly savoured by the audience to a relaxing evening.
