Age Vs Maturity
Older whisky does not always mean better whisky. It’s all about the maturity of the whisky; that perfect moment that the complexity of flavor has had time to develop. Join Dewar’s ambassador Gabriel Cardarella as he discusses why age is more than a number, but not necessarily in the way you’ve been told.
The casks used in aging Scotch are white oak barrels previously used to age bourbon or sherry. It’s here that the whisky gets its color, its complexity and its richness of flavor. Join Dewar’s ambassador Gabriel Cardarella as he describes the crucial relationship between the liquid and the wood in chapter five of “A True Guide to Scotch.”
When it comes to Scotch whisky, the old rules are out. Treat Dewar’s Blended Scotch Whisky just like you would any other whisky by getting out there and trying something new, especially in the world of cocktails. Gabriel Cardarella has gives a great place to start in chapter four of “A True Guide to Scotch.”
