Tasting Notes

"This is a fun blended Scotch from Dewar's, with finishing in rum casks bringing a little more depth to a fairly straightforward blend. It's a pleasantly sweet whisky, with notes of cereal, vanilla, orange peel, and chamomile. A rounded, butterscotch sweetness gives it weight. At 80-proof and affordably priced, it's a very sessionable Scotch."
