The Global Travel Retail (GTR) division of Bacardi has prepared the release of a 16-year-old expression from its Dewar’s blended Scotch whisky brand.
Dewar’s Double Agent 16 Year Old will debut this month at Singapore’s Changi Airport, before a wider GTR roll-out in July. The iteration has been created from a blend of whiskies that have been initially aged in Jerez Sherry and Islay malt whisky casks.
Following maturation, the whiskies are blended together and returned to oak casks for a minimum of 16 years. Finally, the liquid is split into two batches, with one half being finished in ex-Oloroso Sherry casks and the other in Islay casks.
Last year, Bacardi rolled out a 36-year-old Scotch from Dewar’s. Double Double 36-Year-Old underwent a “quadruple ageing process” involving an unspecified number of malt whiskies matured for over 36 years.
