The 25-year-old blended Scotch whisky has been introduced to reinforce Dewars dedication to age statements, and is a blend of malt and grain whiskies that have been finished in ‘freshly disgorged’ casks previously used to mature Royal Brackla, one of the malts owned by Dewar’s.
Fraser Campbell, global ambassador for Dewar's, said: ‘Disclosing the ages of our blends allows discerning whisky drinkers to choose an expression with a maturity and flavour profile that matches their own character preferences. ‘Dewar’s remains committed to age statements as a sign of craftsmanship and quality. In a world where aged stock is increasingly rare, we are proud to display an age on the front of our bottles.’
Dewar’s master blender Stephanie MacLeod said the new expression, which is bottled at 40% abv, embodies ‘rich fruit, floral notes and delicate honey, with a hint of smoke to finish’.
