Description:
Rare indeed are the whiskies selected for Dewar's 18 Year Old Founder's Reserve - and even more unusual the painstaking care of Dewar's Master Blender in managing the time-honoured 'marrying' process that lends such refinement to this exceptional blend. Only the very best 18 year old malt and grain Scotch Whiskies are chosen to create Dewar's 18 Year Old Founder's Reserve, a sweet and mellow whisky with notes of butterscotch and almonds.

The Dewar's marrying 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, Dewar's Master Blender then allows them to rest for a further period in exclusively reserved vintage oak casks, ensuring that their individual flavours and aromas harmonise to achieve the perfectly balanced and exceptionally smooth Scotch that is Dewar's 18. Marrying these superb whiskies adds a smoothness that science cannot explain, but which your taste will at once discern.

Each and every bottle is numbered and stands as a mark of exclusivity.

Golden amber.

A sweet and mellow aroma of butterscotch, gives way to subtle hints of almonds and marzipan with a delicate impression of vanilla for a well-balanced nose.

Surprisingly, initially dry, giving way to a mellow soft sweetness with a lingering creamy mouth feel.

Full bodied.

Long, lingering and slightly dry finish.

Producer Information

Quality and innovation are fundamental to the story of Dewar's.

Dewar's founder, John Dewar, was one of the early pioneers of blending, creating a fine blend from about 6 carefully chosen whiskies at a time when blending was in its infancy. John quickly established a name for himself with the creation of quality blended whisky, and founded a bustling Scottish trade for Dewar's in hotels and public houses.
John's son, John Alexander Dewar, inherited the business from his father, and also his desire for quality. He appointed Dewar's first Master Blender, A J Cameron, who became a pioneer of new techniques as he sought to improve further upon the Dewar's blend. He created the White Label blend in 1899, and shortly after revolutionised blending with the introduction of the marrying process.
The marrying process is simple but effective. The blend is first created using a number of different whiskies, then instead of bottling immediately, it is returned to oak casks for a further period of maturation. A J Cameron married the whiskies for the White Label blend according to the regions they came from, so all Speyside malts were married together, all lowland whiskies, and so on. The result was a superior, smooth and perfectly balanced whisky. At a time when malt whiskies could be quite variable in quality and perhaps a little harsh, the marrying process provided a way to smooth out the ragged edges.
Today Dewar's Master Blender, Tom Aitken, is following in the footsteps of A J Cameron, by creating the Dewar's 12, 15, 18 and Signature blends using a similar marrying process.
