Want to learn more about two of our favorite whiskies? We’ve got you covered. Men’s Journal’s Whiskey Wednesday Live is taking a virtual trip to Scotland on December 16 for a guided tasting of two of our favorite Dewar’s whiskies.

Cardarella and Clark will be leading a tasting of Dewar’s 12, one of the brand’s most beloved core bottles, and Dewar’s 15, the first whisky blended by award-winning master blender Stephanie Macleod.

Macleod is a two-time Master Blender of the Year, and her bottles have won a litany of awards that, as we mentioned earlier this year, are now beginning to become difficult to keep track of.

Dewar’s 15 is a gently sweet-leaning blended scotch, showing floral notes alongside toffee and honey. It’s a versatile whisky—sippable, with a lot of highball application.

Dewar’s 12, by contrast, is a bright and crisp whisky, with notes of dried fruit, vanilla, and citrus. It’s the building block for a lot of experimental releases from the last few years, including the mezcal-finished Ilegal Smooth and rum-finished Caribbean Smooth.

The live guided tasting will take place on December 16 at 5 p.m. EST on Zoom. Click here to register and here to shop Dewar’s bottles.
