However, his reputation is held in far less regard around the empire than in the UK
In Australia certainly.

I haven't found Canada to be much different than the UK in this regard.
In what other parts of the Empire is his reputation tarnished?

Yes in India certainly, although it's not in the Commonwealth anymore.
I took his use of the term "Empire" to mean Commonweath.
Churchill's intransigence on India eliminated any possibility of Dominion status and propelled it into a full break from the UK.
However in many parts of the Commonweath (& the US ) he's remembered as a resolute war leader, and seems the negatives fade from memory.

When Goebels and Hitler mocked him for his drinking, I wonder if the irony ever occurred to them that they were being beaten by a man they described as a “raving drunk”.
Or the more amusing irony that Hitler was addicted to far harder drugs than he accused Churchill of being.
