Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Wonderfully smoky on the nose, reminiscent of smoked meats, vanilla, toasted oak, baked cherries and ripe apricot make a cameo as well. Once in the mouth, it is soft and mellow with vanilla, brown sugar, baked cherries and subtle orange zest flavors. On the finish it is smooth and long with dark chocolate and vanilla notes.

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.
