N- Good old Dewar's now in a striking new packaging. As most the old range of Dewar's are at higher than average points in my opinion. I would not take anything less on this new batch. Grassy honey capped with earthy smokes. Follow up with nice caramelized nutty and heady oily leather aroma with complex wood fire baked apple smokes. Some Sherry oak in the blend?..Probably. Right touch of grainy as it should be at no harm done.
P- Floral and honey sweet, frizzy malt candy, some chocolate dress with thin wood. Really intriguing durian shell nuance at retro-breath. Toasted spicy notes linger.
F- Medium, spicy, good lengthy spicy dryness with soothing warm sweet smokes for a heady finish. A firm 40%, and love the durian hue. Glad to note this is even better than the old Special Reserve 12YO.
