DEWAR’S® Introduces Award-Winning DEWAR’S 18
Spring Arrival Scheduled for U.S.

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today DEWAR’S® Blended Scotch Whiskies announced it will introduce its award-winning DEWAR’S 18 Founders Reserve in the United States this spring with limited availability. Created in 2003, DEWAR’S 18 was awarded a Gold Medal by Whisky Magazine at its World Whisky Awards and was named Gold (Best In Class) Medal Winner at the 2008 International Wine and Spirit Competition.

Rare whiskies were carefully selected for DEWAR’S 18 Founder’s Reserve, and the Master Blender took painstaking care in managing the time-honored marrying process that lends refinement to the exceptional blend. Created and perfected by the legendary AJ Cameron, DEWAR’S first Master Blender, the DEWAR’S marrying process is often imitated but never bettered.

The process takes fine Scotch whiskies at their peak of perfection and improves upon them. Having created a blend of the finest Scotch whiskies from the different regions of Scotland, the Master Blender then allows them to rest for a further period in exclusively reserved vintage oak casks, ensuring that their individual flavors and aromas harmonize to achieve the perfectly balanced and exceptionally smooth Scotch that is DEWAR’S 18.

The color of DEWAR’S 18 is a warm, golden amber with a nose that is immediately sweet and mellow with notes of honey, toffee, butterscotch and perfumed floral notes; subtle hints of almond emerge and a delicate impression of vanilla bean. With time, notes of citrus zest, ripe cherries and just a touch of fresh coconut appear. Vanilla and toffee notes dominate the palette with a mellow, soft sweetness with lingering creaminess and a full bodied oakiness, followed by a long, soft and warming finish with a slight dryness.

Each bottle of DEWAR’S 18 is individually numbered, and the perfect serve is in a rocks glass with one ice cube. Suggested retail price is $80.00.
