Dewar’s Double Double 21 Year is a blended scotch crafted by master blender Stephanie Macleod which is aged in a “four-stage ageing process.” The first step involves single malts and single grains which have been aged separately at least 21 years. Next, the single malts are blended together and rested in exhausted casks. This process is also done for single grains. Then, the blended single malts and blended single grains are blended together and again rested in exhausted casks. Finally, the blended scotch finishes its maturation in sherry casks. For the 21 years, it is finished in ex-oloroso sherry.
“The Dewar’s Double Double 21 Year invites with toffee and almond. It’s sweet on the palate with notes of honey, salted caramel, vanilla, and a touch of brininess, leading to a pleasantly gentle finish. This blend of malt and grain whiskies is delightfully easy to enjoy, and very reasonably priced for its old age.”
