VIDEO: A Double Dram of Dewar’s


This sommelier led tasting features 2 distinctive blended scotch whiskies from Dewar’s that truly showcase how this brand uniquely utilizes multi-cask aging and maturation. With special guest master blender, Stephanie MacLeod.

Dewar’s 15 Year Old

Dewar’s 15 Year Old is a blend of vintage single malt and single grain scotch whiskies, which undergo a double ageing process. It has a delicate, floral aroma with just a hint of smoke. On the palate it offers honey and toffee and an oily, almost chewy mouthfeel with an unusually smooth finish.

Dewar’s 21 Year Old

Dewar’s 21 Year Old is an ultra-smooth blended scotch whisky created thanks to a four stage ageing process, which ultimately finishes in Oloroso Sherry casks. There are sweet and fruity aromas of chocolate, caramel, and ripe vine fruits. While the palate is silky smooth and just a little spicy with notes of cinnamon, gingersnaps, sherry, and light smoke.
