Dewar's 8 year old Portuguese Smooth, 40%

Price: $22 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




A beautiful blush-toned whisky with red currant, cranberry, and light toffee; the delicate spices beautifully integrated with the soft fruits on the nose. Flavors of dried apricots, honey, and vanilla sugar offer a sweet smooth creaminess with hints of butterscotch, cherry syrup, and lingering fine-ground pepper. Adding this latest port finish to its range, Dewar's bolsters the resurgence of the 8 year old age statement in scotch whisky. (Best Value)
