Ilegal Smooth: Dewar’s Blended Scotch Whisky
DEWAR’S® Scotch Whisky, the world’s most awarded blended Scotch whisky, announces the unprecedented first-to-world launch of Dewar’s Ilegal Smooth: Dewar’s 8 year-old double-aged Blended Scotch whisky, finished in Ilegal Mezcal casks for a pleasant and unexpectedly sweet, smooth blend with a wisp of smoke. Dewar’s Ilegal Smooth aims to reflect the Scotch spirit’s progressive new face and invite in new whisky appreciators through partnering with Ilegal, the leading artisanal mezcal in the US.
THE WORLD'S FIRST SCOTCH WHISKY FINISHED IN MEZCAL CASKS
We're excited to announce the word's first Scotch Whisky finished in mezcal casks. "Many of the barrels utilized in aging mezcal are used whisky barrels. It's a nice shift to have our used Ilegal Mezcal barrels crossing borders to age whisky in Scotland. The finished product is delicious.
This partnership between Ilegal and Dewar's is about sharing cultures and creating an opportunity for education around the mezcal category." - Ilegal Mezcal founder John Rexer
