Dewars 25 Year Old Blended Scotch
A 25 year old Blended Scotch is always going to be something i'm going to be happy to give a try of, and this Dewar's 25 Year Old is no different.
The marketing Spiel for this dram which is supposedly double aged drives me crazy. So if double aged was this matured in 2 types of casks or for 50 years as actually it’s double aged. No what they mean is that it was blended and returned to casks again before being finished in ex Royal Brackla casks, but the marketing explanation is a bit odd and confusing, i really wish companies like this were more strictly controlled on the descriptions of the ways in which they are produced and without the involvement of marketing people who don't know their audience.
The whisky itself however is seriously tasty, fruity, malty, oaty, toffee and more, this is complex and really a bit tasty, but the price (around £170 or so) is pretty high for what it is and it's going to be a push for most whisky drinkers to go to over a single malt or even interesting single cask dram.
Thanks to Dewars for the official sample.
Milk chocolate and strawberry cream chocolates from a tin of Cadbury’s Roses, green tins of syrup, hob nob biscuits and even a touch of oaty flapjack, lots of depth and Maltiness in here, touches of cantaloupe melon also and a whisp in the background of dusty cask char.
Juicy, malty fruity, crunchy nut cornflakes, extra syrup, tinned pears in syrup, pretzels
Pretzel and peanut brittle, touch of saline notes
