blended up to 40 single malts and grain whiskies that have laid
in casks for at least 8 years, double aged the blend to ensure
our distinctive extra smooth Dewar's profile, and then finished

Caribbean and brought to our ageing warehouses in Glasgow to
be filled with our flavorful 8-year-old blend. The first in
a series of double-aged cask finishes, DEWAR'S will continue
to bring these new and exciting flavor profiles to a broader
market in order to drive renewed interest in our brand, and
thereby the whisky category."
