Dewar's 12 Special Reserve

Blended Whisky
40% Alcohol content


Dewar's was created by John Dewar, Sr. in 1846. Under the control of his two sons, John A. Dewar Jr. (Lord Forteviot) and Thomas "Tommy" Dewar (Lord Dewar), the brand expanded to a global market by 1896. Tommy became famous as the author of a travel journal, Ramble Round the Globe, which documented his travels while publicizing the Dewar name.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Michael Jackson

Nose: Biscuity, warm and welcoming. Outdoorsy scents of wet hay and grass, with a background note of light toffee. Later releases aromas of malty/grainy, leathery and medium-sweet.


Palate: Lovely sweetness of the malt is on full display. Firm, grainy sweet and slightly oily (which I like).


Finish: Medium-long, cookie/biscuity sweet, and exceedingly alluring.


Comment: Very nice job here and certainly more than recommendable.
