Blended Scotch - 2013
San Francisco World Spirits Competition
What's in a name? Dewars Signature whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Dewars Signature whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Soft, berry fruits. Vanilla fudge, cut flowers, cacao.
Palate: Quite fresh, balanced. Mixed conserves, touch of vanilla fudge.
Finish: Long, smoky, acacia honey.
I was fortunate enough to acquire a Dewar's sampler early last year which featured the 12-year, the 18-year, and the Signature. We're not Scotch aficionado, but my gf and I know what we like, and the Signature was unquestionably rich, complex, and yet approachable. Unexpectedly, the 12-year was our second favorite of the three, which isn't to say that the 18-year is bad, but it did seem unbalanced to us.

Either my 12 year old Dewar's has Signature in it, or my Signature has 12 year old in it. Either way, they taste almost, if not, exactly the same. Same colour, almost same nose except there's maybe very slightly more fresh tobacco on the Signature nose. So the question is, has Dewar's simply bottled 12 year old as Signature?

Your comments are meant to be savored........never forget.
I was not much of a Scotch drinker, I am not a fan of the peaty flavors, but the range of flavors, in this Signature Whiskey can compare to most aged or blended Irish Whiskeys and for that matter most great Whiskeys in general. The only way to make it better is to enjoy it with a great cigar.
