Dewar's Signature Blended Scotch Whisky
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
Dewar's Signature is the culmination of more than 150 years of blending tradition, yet few will ever be privileged to experience a whisky this sublime, this rarefied and this complex. At the heart of this blend is Aberfeldy Single Malt, aged beyond its years, adding distinction and maturity to the other fine and rare whiskies specially selected for our 'signature' style. Color: Deep golden amber. Nose: Sweet and balanced. Rich, fruity mellow notes of sultanas, raisins, apples and honey with vanilla and toffee overtones. Palate: Sweet and smooth with a full bodied creamy texture and mouth warming effect. Body: Full bodied. Finish: Long and pleasant with a slightly dry finish.
Biscuity, almost doughy in the initial sniffings; later sniffings uncover elegant aromas of lightly toasted bread, almond paste and sweet malt, with traces of peat and cigar smoke. Palate entry is dry, grainy and lightly smoked; the midpalate is sap-like, alluringly sweet, woodsy and honeyed. Finishes medium-long and toasty. Core malt hails from the Central Highlands distillery, Aberfeldy. Terrific job of blending magic.
