Well, since I have some time (too much time), let's do a few Dewars. Or should I say, Dew a Few Dewars? How's that for branding, eh??

This is their current White Label bottling, which has what I presume is a batch number (CR-0078) and a bottle code (L19332ZA102 1250). Their entry level bottling is blended from up to 40 malt and grain whiskies, with an emphasis on Aberfeldy (and likely the other Bacardi malts: Aultmore, Craigellachie, Royal Brackla and Macduff).

The colour is a pale gold. On the nose it's full-on heather honey, marzipan, melon, baked apple and lemon pith. Slightly floral. Mildly spicy with cinnamon. Easy, approachable nose; don't bother adding water.

Fruitier on the palate, and maltier than you might think for an entry-level blend. A touch spicier with some chili, but mostly it's Anjou pear, cantaloupe and grapefruit, while continuing on with the honey theme. Creamy mouthfeel, but dryer with water. Quite decent.

The finish is long and dry with a bit of oak and black pepper. A good standard blend to keep around the house, it's neither outstanding nor astringent or off-putting. Smooth, fruity with some honey and a bit of spice to liven things up. Now, according to the label, "Dewar's Never Varies". But what if we took a time machine back to the 1960s....
