Dewar's 12 year old blend, called 'Double Aged' due to the 6 months of marrying in oak casks that the whisky does after initial maturation and blending. Dewar's is one of the world's most awarded whiskies, recently winning the Monde Grand Gold across their range.

    Quite good – lots of honey, some sherry, fruit, cookies, lots of malt and a pepper finish with mild smoke.

    Tried the 12 year this evening. Smooth, but not very smoky. Good taste does not linger very long, but the price is fair. Overall a good, but inexpesive choice

    Very nice, on “close out” at the store so I got a good price. Like The smoothness.

    Pretty good scotch whisky. Good balance of flavours and not too confronting. Enjoying it as an easy drinking scotch that is not spectacular but good value considering the price. Gives the 12 yo JWB and Chivas Regal 12 a good run for the money.

    Hands down the best value for anything non peat or smoky, even JWB and a few other $50-$70 have no hold on this. Full body and such a great journey start to finish you don't even have a longing for any smoke, it's that good. I'm generally a Benraich, Bowmore or Te'Bheag (sp) man but this may be my new go to, and for $42 Canadian!

    A well crafted blend with Aberfeldy, Aultmore and Cragganmore at the core. Subtle and heathery nose with a sweet malty arrival. Biscuits, oranges and honey on the palate with a nice firm body. This whisky delivers in a truly elegant fashion and love the retro packaging. It's been my staple house blend for the past 3-4 years.

    My "staple" whisky - period. I love SMWs, sipping a Talisker right now, but the Dewars 12 is my blue jeans: always comfortable, always comforting.

    "Nose" (undiluted) Mellon, fruitcake, raspberries. "Palate" (undiluted) Spiced honey up front, followed by easy sherry notes, golden barley, pancakes, spiced strawberries. "Finish" (undiluted) Malty, black pepper, fennel, anise, arak, black licorice, blackened toast. "General Impressions" This is really good in the blend category. Definitely displays some sherry notes on the palate and then there is a very pleasant finish of malt, black licorice and dark toast. Well balanced. Not grainy either.

    Surprised at the glowing reviews here. I thought it was distinctly average and definitely overpriced. In my personal opinion, you''d be better off getting a sub-£20 standard blend - any one.

    love the 12 yr old oak cast dewars..almost as good as a lot of single malts...

    Very nice light blend. I get a sweet finish with no peat. I have the 12 year old blend as pictured above called the "The Ancestor". The "Doubled Age" 12 year old mentioned has a dark blue label so I''m not sure if they are the same.

    As someone who normally prefers single malts, this is one of the best blended whiskys around. It is a massive step up from Dewar's White Label and on a par with Ballantine's 17 year old. I am surprised that this is not widely available in shops in the UK, it certainly should be!
