Looking for a smooth, port-finished whisky at a very reasonable price? You might want to grab a bottle of Dewars Portuguese Smooth. It’s the third release in Dewar's "Smooth" series that previously had the Caribbean Smooth Rum Cask Finish and the Ilegal Smooth Mezcal Cask Finish. It’s an 8 year old Dewars that’s finished in ruby port casks. Think bargain-priced Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban. Pinkish color. Sweet and fruity on the nose. The palate is also quite sweet with strawberries, some honey and cereal notes. It doesn’t hang around too much on the finish and is a little bit tart with a hint of toasted nuts. A dash of water takes away the slight tart note and adds a hint of sweet chocolate (Turkish delight.?) I wouldn’t recommend this to the peat-heads, but if you are a fan of Dewars, or if you tend to like Sherry/port finished scotches, it definitely hits the spot as an affordable daily-sipper. Added note: it’s not as good as the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, but it’s a third of the price!
