Insider knowledge: Dewars 12 Year Old Special Reserve whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Dewars 12 Year Old Special Reserve whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Toasty. Malt, cut flowers, toffee, hint of smoke.
Palate: Little fuller, acacia honey, fudge, hints of smoke. Barley.
Finish: Medium, honey, barley and smoke.
Having a taste for something different in whisky, I found it in this one to drink slowly while enjoying a good book in peace and quiet.

One of the finest reserve whisky in the world. Pleasing to the nose, silky on the palate, and a good clean finish.

I bought one of these after a tour of the distillery about 6 years ago. I had been insure about whisky after tasting some rough brands. This was so smooth it converted me to whisky. Is it possible to get it anywhere. We have just returned from a Week in Scotland but I was unable to find any.

I have just developed a taste for scotch whiskey. I've sampled many different brands. Dewars 12 year is the smoothest taste I have ever tasted for a blended scotch. Just excellent. Thank you Dewars.

exceptional aroma and a great tast,i usually drink single malt and black label but this is even better.great
I bought 3 Bottles of this in Dubai Duty Free Shop on 17th May 2010 night on my way to Chennai India, just because of the Offer for every 3 Bottles of Dewar's 12 Year Old Whiskey a Hand Luggage Suitcase Free.To my dismay this Whiskey was pretty Bad in taste as wlll as aroma. I normally buy only Blacklabel of Jhonnywalker, but because of this offer I bought this.Please make a better acceptable Whiskey for Public if you want to compete with Jhonnywaler Black Label

Very good value for money! Even better than simpler malts. I wish there was a 15YO edition of Dewars, like eg. the Cutty Sark 15YO (hint hint hint!).
