Dewar’s Signature is a blended whisky comprised of ‘only the rarest of rare whiskies’. These whiskies in Dewar’s Signature are kept aside specifically for inclusion only in Dewar’s signature by the Master Blender.
Over 160 Years’ worth of blending tradition and every whisky region in Scotland is represented in every bottle of Dewar’s Signature.
Dewar’s Signature undergoes a second round of ageing to bring out the whisky’s complex flavours and smooth, velvety taste.
Put best by the folk at Dewar’s themselves, “All our whiskies are smooth, but this is the smoothest. All our whiskies are rich, but this is the richest. All our whiskies are full bodied, but this is the fullest. Dewar’s signature would make John Dewar proud. “
Honeyed – a drizzle of honey poured over Scottish fudge. Warm, buttery and mellow. Rich toffee- Macadamia toffee and shavings of coconut. Rich, creamy and sweet. Velvet – a full finish, rich oak with a swirl of caramel. Complex, lingering and smooth.
In 1846, John Dewar began blending the finest whisky he could source in Scotland and bottling it with his own name on the label. Within a decade, Dewar was supplying whisky to bars and hotels throughout Scotland. By the turn of the century, the brand had expanded to become one of the best selling whiskies in the world and today, remains the best selling Scotch whisky in the United States.
Dewar’s Signature Blended Scotch Whisky — the flagship whisky of John Dewar & Sons Co. — is crafted by blending together “the rarest of rare whiskies from across Scotland.” The backbone of the whisky is a 27 year-old single malt whisky that is crafted at Aberfeldy Distillery, according to master blender Thomas Aitken. Once the 27 year-old is married together with other whiskies, the resulting blend is allowed to rest again in oak casks. This secondary maturation process “is a marriage made in heaven — ensuring our whiskies are even smoother and creamier,” says Aitken.
As a result of its unique components and maturation process, Dewar’s Signature Blended Scotch Whisky has a deep amber color, along with an aroma of maple, honey, anise and smoke. The aroma gives way to notes of rich, creamy vanilla, honey, rock candy and licorice on the palate. The finish is long and warm, with a touch of heathery, floral notes.
Dewar’s Signature earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2007 and 2013. In addition, it earned a score of 93 points from the Beverage Testing Institute and a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthuasiast. Pick up a bottle today!
