The famous Dewar’s signature blend delivers a deeper, smoother profile with more than a dozen years in the casks.

John Dewar Sr. founded the company in 1846. But it was when his two sons — John Dewar Jr. and Thomas Dewar took over the business that it really took off. The lads expanded the brand into a global market leader by the end of the century with attention to detail, a fine product, and quite frankly some brilliant marketing. Along the way they pioneered the technique of "marrying" where a blended Scotch is re-casked to allow for a period of aging together. And there have been a few mergers and acquisitions along the way, but the company is now owned by Bacardi who largely leave them alone to work their magic across six major Scotch and Single Malt brands. 

As solid as Dewars White Label is, some folks think that’s all that Dewar’s makes. And that’s a shame, because that’s where the range of Dewar’s Scotches begins. A couple steps up the age range you’ll find Dewar’s 12 Year Old. Like the entire range, the formulation starts with their classic range of up to forty Single Malts and grain Spirits. And after a dozen years each, they are blended to perfection and then married for up to six months longer until the flavor unifies.

Appearance / Color
Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is surprisingly floral with a layer of dark fruits, creamy flan, marzipan, and toasted grains.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The first thought when it hits out tongue is granola clusters with blackberries and almonds followed by a bit of spicy smoke.

Finish
The finish is nicely long with roasting grains.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
