Dewar's 18 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky (750ml)
In the day and age of rising prices and disappearing age statements, it is refreshing to see an 18yo whisky sell for under $100.
Dewar’s, for one reason or another has become extremely popular amongst American whisky imbibers. Perhaps it is their preference for lighter tasting beers that extends into their tastes for Scotch? This 18 year old release from the makers of one of the best-selling scotch in the world adds to Dewar’s already impressive portfolio of blends. Key malts include Aberfeldy, Macduff, Royal Brackla, Craigellachie and Aultmore. Note that this is a 750ml bottle as opposed to the 700ml format commonly found in Australia, usually selling for around the $150 mark. Comes in special gift tin presentation.
Other reviews... Here is a classic case of where great blends are not all about the malt. The grain plays in many ways the most significant role here, as it is the perfect backdrop to see the complexity of the malt at its clearest. Simply magnificent blending with the use of a flawless whisky. 93 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2019
...Vanilla laced with spice, fondant icing, grapefruit peel, and lime zest leave the vanilla and floral notes lower down the pecking order. In the mouth, grapefruit and orange dominate the vanilla, yet the mouthfeel is thinner and the acidity tips toward the taste of bitter orange seeds. A lingering bitter orange finish. 85 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Spring 2018)
