Thinking of Drinking: Dewar’s Ilegal Smooth

Dewar’s continues to push the boundaries within the whisky category, through their commitment to innovation by creating the world’s first mezcal cask finished Scotch whisky. Dewar’s Ilegal Smooth is a premium 8-year-old Scotch, double-aged, and finished in Ilegal mezcal casks for a pleasantly unexpected sweet, smooth taste with a wisp of smoke finish.

Hitting shelves in the US & Canada in mid-April, with 100% distribution by May 1st, this invigorating blend of two distinctly different cultures, Scotland and Mexico, is Dewar’s second cask finished whisky extension, following the successful launch of Caribbean Smooth launch last year. Ilegal Smooth dispels myths around what’s possible between whisky and mezcal. The liquid’s flavor profile has subtle notes of caramel, sliced green pepper and a wisp of smoke; offering brown spirit drinkers a refreshing new go-to and unique pairing for entertaining or epicurean gatherings. 

Ilegal Smooth breathes new life into the whisk(e)y and mezcal categories by bringing together unexpected cultural flavors from Scotland and Mexico to create something uniquely richer. The fortuitous partnership also highlights the shared traits of both founders, Tommy Dewar (Dewar’s) and John Rexer (Ilegal) – their grit, humble humor and passion for creating the best ultra-premium, smooth spirits on an ambitious scale.
