Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Hearty aromas of charred cedar, smoked meats, vanilla, hazelnut and dark chocolate covered cherries rise from the glass. Mouth-filling and deep with amazingly complex flavors of caramelized onion, peat and grapefruit. Dark chocolate lingers on the finish with a delicate smokiness. (Apr 2014)
Producer Notes: Dewar's 12 Year Old is a luxuriously rich, fruity and smooth blend. We return our Dewar's 12 Year Old to vintage oak casks, and age it again so it can mature a little more. This extra step is called double-aging. It means the flavors stay a while in the cask creating an even smoother blend, with a long, lingering finish.
