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.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
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.
