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.

The Dewar's 12 year only uses 12 year old whiskies of the highest quality to produce this super-smooth, balanced blend. Medium to full-bodied, the 12 year is rich and honeyed on the palate with round, full flavors that linger on the finish.
