Dewar's White Label Scratched Cask. Photo ©2015 by Mark Gillespie.This US exclusive is finished in ex-Bourbon casks that have been scratched on the inside to expose more wood to the whisky during final maturation. The nose is warm and smooth with touches of clove, vanilla, brown sugar, molasses, honey, and a touch of dark chocolate. The taste is tart with lemon zest, orange pekoe tea, a hint of clove, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and hints of butterscotch and toasted oak. The finish is short and fruity with touches of brown sugar and butterscotch. (May, 2015)
