A blended Scotch aged for more than a quarter century and finished in Palo Cortado Sherry casks for an experience beyond age.

John Dewar Sr. founded the company in 1846. But it was when his two sons — John Dewar Jr. and Thomas Dewar took over the business that it really took off. The lads expanded the brand into a global market leader by the end of the century with attention to detail, a fine product, and quite frankly some brilliant marketing. Along the way they pioneered the technique of "marrying" where a blended Scotch is re-casked to allow for a period of aging together. And there have been a few mergers and acquisitions along the way, but the company is now owned by Bacardi who largely leave them alone to work their magic across six major Scotch and Single Malt brands.

Last year, Dewar’s shook up the Scotch world by releasing a series of three ultra-premium blends called the "Double-Doubles." All three of these ancient gems were issued at a perfect 46% ABV, each aged a different length of time in a different variety of Sherry casks. The exact composition of each blend remains a mystery, however.

Dewar’s Double Double 27 Year Old is comprised of Single Malts and grain Whiskies finished in Palo Cortado Sherry casks, delivering a heavy, luxurious mouth-feel and notes of warm fruits.


Smartass Corner:
Palo Cortado Sherry is aged under the "flor," meaning that there is a cap of yeast on top that prevents oxidation during aging. It has the complexity of an Oloroso and the freshness of a Fino Sherry.

Corner
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.

Christopher,
Lives up to the whisky of the year hype. Smooth with great texture and warmth. Only real issues are finding it and that it comes in a 375mL bottle. It’s going to the back of the shelf with my Glenmorangie Signet - sipped with friends and family on special occasions

Paul,
What can I say? This hard to find gem is delicious. The profile is wonderfully complex. I now have both the 32 and 27 in my collection and I’m on the lookout for the 21. Outstanding and highly recommended.
