Scotch Whiskey Blenders Dewar’s has introduced the newest iteration from its award-winning Double Double series, Double Double 21-Year-Old Mizunara Oak Cask Finish.
Finished in Japanese Mizunara Oak casks, the expression brings together the distilling traditions of Japan and Scotland, creating a rare blend that captures the essence of the two cultures.
“The journey of creating this expression has been an exploration of flavours and craftsmanship, said Stephanie Macleod, Master Blender for Dewar’s. “Together, my team and I introduced a distinctive twist to our award-winning DEWAR’s Double Double 21-Year-Old by finishing it in Japanese Mizunara Oak casks, creating a new and exciting whisky.
Unlike American oak, Mizunara Oak requires more than 200 years to reach maturity and does not grow straight, posing a unique challenge in the process of forming it into casks. The resulting liquid, however, has an intriguing balance of succulence, purity, and smoothness.
“This latest iteration in the Double Double Series is a testament to our commitment to delivering unparalleled experiences to our connoisseurs,” Macleod continued.
Bottled at 46%, the expression features a balance of tasting notes, with the Oak imparting subtle hints of sandalwood and coconut, contributing to a smooth mouthfeel. The finish leaves behind a sweet, clean taste with a touch of creamy vanilla.
“The unveiling of Dewar’s Double Double 21-Year-Old Mizunara is a toast to change and growth,” explained Brian Cox, Vice President of Dewar’s North America. This release reflects our steadfast dedication to crafting exceptional whisky experiences that bring people together and harmonise tradition and innovation.”
