Dewars Ilegal Smooth 8 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Dewars Ilegal Smooth 8 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky

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.Dewars Signature Blended Scotch Whisky the flagship whisky of John Dewar and Sons Co. is crafted by blending together "the rarest of rare whiskies from across Scotland." The backbone of the whisky is a 27-year-old single malt whisky that is crafted at Aberfeldy Distillery, according to master blender Thomas Aitken. 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," says Aitken.Created in partnership with Ilegal Mezcal, Dewars Ilegal Smooth takes an 8-year-old double aged blended Scotch whisky to a round of finishing in barrels that used to hold Mezcal from Oaxaca, Mexico the first such whisky in the world. Their recipe of up to 40 single malts is upgraded with unique green pepper and subtle smoky notes. "Its a nice shift to have our used Ilegal Mezcal barrels crossing borders to age whisky in Scotland. The finished product is delicious," says Ilegal Mezcal founder John Rexer.Get a bottle today!
