Dewar's 12 Year Aged Scotch Whisky is a blend of single malt and single grain whisky and double-aged in oak and sherry barrels. Most of the grain comes from Aberfeldy, a distillery built in 1886 by John Dewar's other industrious son, Alexander.
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.
