About Dewar's Double Double Aged 21 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky
In 1846, John Dewar began blending the finest whisky he could source in Scotland and bottling it with his own name on the label. Within a decade, Dewar was supplying whisky to bars and hotels throughout Scotland. By the turn of the century, the brand had expanded to become one of the best selling whiskies in the world and today, remains the best selling Scotch whisky in the United States.
Dewar's Signature Blended Scotch Whisky — the flagship whisky of John Dewar & Sons Co. — is crafted by blending together "the rarest of rare whiskies from across Scotland." The backbone of the whisky is a 27 year-old single malt whisky that is crafted at Aberfeldy Distillery, according to master blender Thomas Aitken. Once the 27 year-old is married together with other whiskies, the resulting blend is allowed to rest again in oak casks. This secondary maturation process "is a marriage made in heaven — ensuring our whiskies are even smoother and creamier," says Aitken.
This distinctive Dewar’s blended using the same maturation processes as their flagship whisky. In stage 1 their single grain and single malt whiskies are aged in oak casks. The second stage is blended grain and blended malt whiskies, also aged in oak casks. Step 3 the grain and blended malt whiskies are blended, with additional maturation in oak casks. In step 4, this meticulously blended whisky is finally aged in sherry casks.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
