Dewar's Scotch -- tastes different lately?

Lucymax | Mar 15, 2008 09:48 AM

OK, Dewar's is my husband and my favorite blended scotch. My husband says he has been drinking it since he was about 16 years old (many years ago). I've been drinking it regularly for about 7 years. We both think that lately it does not taste the same. We used to like it for its light, almost sweet, very smooth flavor, without a lot of iodine notes. Now it tastes and smells far more like iodine, to both of us. Anyone agree? Has anyone heard anything? If we're right, it seems pretty shocking to me to change a long-standing blend recipe such that a layman like me really notices the difference.
