After Dewar’s 12 is blended, it is it is returned to the vintage oak casks so it can mature further, just like we joke new dads might have to do, too! ($28.99)


DEWAR’S 18 is the perfect medium for the dad who knows how to be crisp like Dewar’s 12 and refined like Dewar’s Signature all at the same time. Always mellow, and soft like the sweet hints of butterscotch and almonds, the dram is suitably mature for the cool dad who always has it right. ($79.99)


DEWAR’S SIGNATURE is an ultra-premium, exclusive offering saved for the dads who have made it through the terrible twos and the bratty teenage stage. Made up of both young and rare-aged whiskies, Dewar’s Signature is perfect for the late-boomer dad who has seen it all and has always strived to be the best dad he can be. An incomparably smooth Scotch whisky, this is the one for dads who don’t compare – they’ve always been there for us and have only proved to be the best. ($199.99)
