Dewar's 19 year old The Champions Edition, 43%
Price: $80 ● Issue: Summer 2021 ● Reviewer: Jonny McCormick
This limited edition, released for the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, is bourbon cask-finished after following Dewar's customary double-aging process. It tees off with manuka honey, toasted English muffin, vanilla seed, toasted coconut, and baking spice aromas. It goes down the hole smoothly, with creamy flavors around a core of vanilla intensity plus cream soda, dried banana, and green fruits, gliding through honey, butterscotch sauce, and caramel.
