Dewar's 30 year old Ne Plus Ultra, 40%

Price: $499 Issue: Spring 2018 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This Pedro Ximénez-finished blend is the oldest Dewar's expression available. It offers a deliciously deep nose of chocolate-dipped biscuits, dried fruits, and orange peel. The palate includes indulgent rewards of berry fruit, chocolate praline, raspberry, cherry, dried cranberry, and hazelnut. It remains succulent throughout, the sherry fruit keeping the upper hand over the chocolate and batting away the occasional coffee note. A dry finish with nutty chocolate and roasted spice.
