Dewar's Founder's Reserve 18 year old
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
Only the very best 18 year old malt and grain Scotch Whiskies are chosen to create DEWAR'S 18 Year Old Founder's Reserve, Blended Scotch Whisky. Golden amber color. A sweet and mellow aroma of butterscotch, gives way to subtle hints of almonds and marzipan with a delicate impression of vanilla for a well-balanced nose. Surprisingly, initially dry palate, giving way to a mellow soft sweetness with a lingering creamy mouth feel. Full bodied. Long, lingering and slightly dry finish.
Give this soft, smooth whisky a little time to open up. At first, it reads as fruity, oaky and a little floral, but after a while deeper caramel and almond aromas open up. Dried fruit, vanilla, and caramel flavors segue into a lingering smoky finish, which accelerates with repeated sips.
