There’s always room for improvement. As Dewar’s sees it, a new spin on its standard 12-year-old expression is an opportunity to create something even better. The brand, known for creating blended Scotch whiskies, announced the release on Monday.
Joining the 13 other expressions in Dewar’s permanent whisky lineup, the new release is double-aged in first-fill American Oak Bourbon casks, according to a Sept. 26 press release. The process adds layers of complexity to the whisky, alongside deeper flavors. The standard version of the 12-year-old whisky still remains available, according to brand representatives.
