Adding to its portfolio of whiskies, John Dewar & Sons Ltd. released a new varietal from Aultmore Distillery: Aultmore 12-Year-Old. The 46 percent alcohol-by-volume single malt Scotch whisky uses water drawn from a mysterious area known as Foggie Moss, where it’s naturally filtered through gorse and heather, the company says. This, along with the peat-free malt, ensures a light, clean character and adds grassy notes, it adds. Packaged in 750-ounce glass bottles, Aultmore 12-Year-Old is available in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Texas for a suggested retail price of $55.
