Dewar's Double Double 27 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky 375 ml
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. By the end of the 19th century, the famed Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery became operational. Situated by the Pitilie Burn, the small river has served as a source of pure water to this day. After the malted Scottish barley is brought in, it is left to ferment for an extended period of time, before being distilled in tall pot stills. The Aberfeldy single malt that is produced here remains the heart of Dewar's blend today. The premises are open for tours and cask tasting with a whisky lounge and cafe on hand. Dewar's whisky is crafted by blending together "the rarest of rare whiskies from across Scotland." The backbone is that 27-year-old single malt whisky that is crafted at Aberfeldy Distillery. 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," said Dewar's retired master blender Thomas Aitken. It's this great foundation and the signature "double aging" process that have made Dewar's the most awarded blended Scotch whisky in the world. Where the "double aged" series ends, the innovative and premium Double Double picks up. Created by Dewar's Master Blender Stephanie MacLeod, this 27-year-old expression takes the matured single malt and grain whiskies and blends them, then lets each style age separately. Afterwards, both are blended together and re-casked for an additional month. In the end, the liquid is transferred to Paolo Cortado sherry casks for a round of finishing, before being bottled at 92 proof. The 4-sided bottle reflects the 4 stages of the aging process.
