  • Intro:

    The latest release in Dewar's annual whiskey launched in partnership with the U.S. Open Golf Tournament, this is "The Champions Edition." This 19-year-old spirit composed of up to 40 grain and single malt whiskies. The blend was aged in red wine casks from Napa Valley, marking Dewar’s first time using non-fortified wine casks during the aging process.

  • Nose:

    Light grain but full of honey, red fruits, a pinch of pepper and sweet buttercream.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouthfeel. Not wildly rich, but there is quite a bit more going on here compared to a typical Dewar's teenage expression. Sweet buttercream, light honey, toffee and a splash of vanilla, plus currants, raspberry and strawberry.

  • Finish:

    Long. The pour peaks here. The finish sticks around for a good bit and is a satisfying blend of sweet and fruity, leaving the pepper and spice behind to focus on sweet cream, honey and berries.

  • Overall:

    This is an easy sipper and an interesting one at that.
