    1061) Dewar's 18YO, The Vintage (2017)

    N- Quite impressive line ups as printed on the label on informing where the malts of this blend are from. Good soft orange, layer of sherry with tannin of black tea. Honey, fruit jello and subtle smokes with wafts of floral and earthiness. Rounded grain, get milky as it sits in the glass with rising rusty notes and citrus peel at tail. High malt blends. (86/20)

    P- Breezy orchard fruits, apple, honey with subtle wood smokes. Good fruity blends, but with equally good 12 and 15, hard to find a reason why pay more for this 18YO. (86/20)

    F- Medium, dry, honey-ed fruits compote, pleasant with fine oak coating. Well rounded and hard to find fault at, just, expecting more imposing character as 18YO. (86/20)

    Body/Balance- 86/20
