Deconstructing Dewar’s Blended Whiskies [SLIDESHOW]

APRIL 23, 2016

Dewar’s, an award-winning blended Scotch whisky, has never disclosed which specific single malts go into its 12-, 15-, and 18-year-old whiskies, its top-of-the-line Signature whisky, and others. But last year, John Dewar & Sons decided to select some of the most coveted single malts used in these blends and, for the first time, spotlight these individual single-malt brands. Initial offerings were single malts from the Craigellachie and Aberfeldy distilleries, with Aultmore, the Deveron, and Royal Brackla joining the lineup shortly afterwards.

Now John Dewar & Sons is showcasing the latter three whiskies as individually packaged Single Malt Tomes in book-like presentations with befitting titles. Each Tome is attractively fitted with one of the three 12-year-old single malts, accompanied by some carefully selected accoutrements that help tell the story of the brands. Only 100 each of the three Single Malt Tomes have been produced, and they are available exclusively online for delivery in select U.S. states.
