Dewar’s Master Blender, Stephanie Macleod, is on a continuous journey of experimentation to develop new flavor profiles in the Dewar’s house style. This 8 year old old blended Scotch Whisky has flavors that complement our Eastern Highlands Scottish character of floral and honeyed flavor with notes of brown sugar and tropical fruits, and an extra smooth finish on the palate.
Normally, 60% of a Whisk(e)y’s flavor comes from the wood. This is enhanced even more so by the extra aging period, so Stephanie decided to place this blend in ex-Caribbean rum casks to finish their maturation. This specific cask finishing beautifully complements the classic Dewar’s house style, creating a complex, yet harmonious blend.
