Dewar's 12 Year Old Bottling Note

The classic 12 year old blend from Dewars, this stuff is the successor to Dewar's "Double Aged" 12 Year Old - so named in reference to the additional six month marriage the whisky enjoys in oak after the initial maturation and blending. The practice is maintained despite the name change and the result is loads of flavour…

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A heady note of juicy fruit and thick, creamy malt. Rather floral, and quite sweet with notes of toasted barley, almond and a tinge of honey.

Palate: The palate is perfectly poised with notes of barley malt, hot buttered toast, a little honey, and some aniseed spiciness.

Finish: A touch of smoke on the tail, alongside plenty of thick malt and sweetness.

Dewar's 12 Year Old - The Ancestor Reviews


Buy Dewar’18 aged years true scotch the vintage Blended scotch whisky?

Great value for $$$

For a mid-level scotch this is wonderful. I am no Scotch snob. Generally my sweet spot is between 50 and $80 and I have 30 scotches in my collection. However I will pay $100 to $150 for something I especially like. I have 5 bottles in that price range but that is not my norm. I will splurge and pay for more expenses scotch but I cannot see myself regularly paying for something $150 or over unless it absolutely blows my mind. That said, I paid $23, including tax for Dewars 12 and really enjoyed it so had to go back for 2 more bottles. I get oak, apples, honey, vanilla, and spice. Definite Burbon influences. The flavors are between light to medium, closer to medium in taste. At $25 or be low it is a great value.

5 Star Value

My "go to Scotch" of course there are better Scotch's out there, however, when you add value for money The Ancestor is 5 Star!

A heady mix of smoke and honey

Not too strong one way or another; subtle blend of floral, spices, smoke and honey elements. Decent drink, for a decent price.

Great value indeed !

Excellent competition to fruity & chocolaty Single Malts , but at the back of the Palate you do get The Grains ! For the price , it is a steal ...

Good enough for a queen great for a family.

Our favourite blend! Tried it when we visited the distillery two years ago and the whole family except one grandson are hooked. Sample to send to him, What good taste Queen Victoria had.

Here’s a great mid ranger, smooth as hell. Love it. Bottle sniffs like sherry. White label is awful, this redeems the Dewars brand

Great value malty honeyed blend

I was given a bottle as a present and it sat unopened for a couple of years as I kept getting excited by various single malts that appeared more exciting. Opened it only to use in a cocktail, but the thick honeyed aroma brought me back the next day to try it straight. Just had another glass in front of a roaring log fire and reckon this is a great drop, with a depth of flavour and no rough edges that makes it very good value indeed (okay, I did say it was a pressie!!). In trying to think of fancy taste-descriptors I’d go for rich nougat alongside the honey. Nice blend =)
