Dewar’s 32-Year Scotch Whisky Won 2 Of The World’s Most Coveted Awards

Originally released in late 2019, Dewar’s 32-year “Double Double” whisky appeared on the radar of the elite liquor world when the blended Scotch was crowned the “World’s Best Blended Whisky” at the 2020 World Whisky Awards back in Spring. And the 32-year-old Scotch has now been awarded yet another highly-coveted accolade, winning “World’s Best Blended Scotch” at the 11th Edition of the International Whisky Competition.

The Double Double utilizes a process that was originally used by renowned blender A.J. Cameron (the force behind Dewar’s White Label), in which a four-step aging process is used. Created under the watchful eye of Dewar’s 7th master blender, Stephanie MacLeod — who also won “Master Blender Of The Year” at the 2020 International Whisky Competition — the Double Double earned a score of 96.4 out of a possible 100. Finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, this incredibly-smooth Scotch boasts a sweet palate and nose. And, though the 32-year version is obviously the most cherished member of the Double Double lineup, Dewar’s also offers 21-year and 27-year versions. Though it’s sold out on most retailers — which tends to happen with highly-awarded bottles like this — the 32 Year version can currently be found on some online alcohol delivery services.
