One of the top three whiskies of the year 2019, Whiskey Advocate!
Dewar’s 8 year old Caribbean Smooth Rum Cask-Finished Blended Scotch
90 points, 40% ABV
A delicious dram with a sunny disposition, this drums out aromas of butter biscuits, raisins, vanilla sugar, cane honey, and abundant tropical fruit notes of guava and papaya. It’s a light and nimble blend that weaves through white chocolate, biscuit notes, chewy granola bar, apricot, and mandarin. Spices rattle around a fruit core on the finish. Rum powerhouse Bacardi acquired Dewar’s in 1998; they should have done this years ago. —Jonny McCormick
