Review: Dewar’s Founder’s Reserve 18 yr. oldJune 16th, 2009
Dewar’s Founder’s Reserve, 18 year old, 40%, $80
Available for several years, but now finally making its debut in the U.S. The higher end Dewar’s expressions (Dewar’s 12 year old and Dewar’s Signature) are very good blends. This one is situated smartly between these two. The malt proportion is rich and creamy. The grain whisky is crisp and well integrated. Antique gold color, with notes of butterscotch, vanilla wafer, strawberry/rhubarb pie, and citrus drizzled with honey. Lovely floral notes in the aroma too, along with a pleasing, dried spice finish. I could drink this stuff all day long!
