February 29, 2024

DEWAR'S Double Double Series

Dewar’s Blended Scotch Whisky announced the release of a new iteration of its Double Double series, Double Double 21 Year Old Mizunara Oak Cask Finish. Finished in Japanese Mizunara Oak casks, this expression was ranked #7 in Whisky Advocate’s list of Top 20 Most Exciting Whiskies of 2023, with a rating of 95. 

Dewar’s Double Double 21 Year Old Mizunara Oak Cask Finish brings together the distilling traditions of Japan and Scotland, creating a rare blend that captures the essence of two cultures. Unlike American oak, Mizunara Oak requires more than 200 years to reach maturity and does not grow straight, posing a unique challenge in the process of forming it into casks. 

Every marque in the Dewar’s Double Double series is crafted with a unique four-stage aging process spearheaded by five-time Master Blender of the Year, Stephanie Macleod. This process has earned Dewar’s original iteration of Double Double 21 Year Old 1st place at the International Whisky Competition for Best Blended Scotch 20-24 yrs in 2023.

“The journey of creating this expression has been an exploration of flavors and craftsmanship,” Macleod said in a news release. “Together, my team and I introduced a distinctive twist to our award-winning Dewar’s Double Double 21 Year Old by finishing it in Japanese Mizunara Oak casks, creating a new and exciting whisky. This latest iteration in the Double Double Series is a testament to our commitment to delivering unparalleled experiences to our connoisseurs.”

“The unveiling of Dewar’s Double Double 21 Year Old Mizunara is a toast to change and growth,” Brian Cox, Vice President of Dewar’s North America, added. “This release reflects our steadfast dedication to crafting exceptional whisky experiences that not only bring people together, but also harmonize tradition and innovation. When enjoying this whisky, let it be a catalyst for shared moments of joy and celebration with friends and family in a timeless toast to the blend of Japanese craftsmanship and Scottish tradition.”

Available for $149.99 and bottled at 46% ABV, Dewar’s Double Double 21 Year Old Mizunara is available in 750ml bottles at spirits retailers nationwide and on Dewar’
