Dewar’s 12-Year-Old is a Blended Scotch Whisky to experience. And after all, great whisky is all about the experience.

Dewar's 12-Year-Old combines our legendary smoothness with award-winning taste. The notes of dried fruit, citrus and vanilla make it ideal for sipping, and add extra depth to highballs and cocktails. Winning a Double Gold at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, it's a whisky that rightfully deserves its place on every "must try" list.

The extra years spent ageing in oak casks result in richer, fuller flavours and more rounded aromas. These are qualities that every whisky aficionado will appreciate. And of course, it has Dewar’s legendary smooth character, the result of our double-ageing process. Simply put: we age, we blend, then we age again. A.J. Cameron (our first Master Blender) pioneered the double-ageing process in 1881. The extra step provides greater balance and smoothness. Yes, it costs us more, but it results in a taste that wins medals and acclaim, making Dewar’s the world’s most-awarded Blended Scotch Whisky.

Tasting Note
Nose: A heady note of juicy fruit and thick, creamy malt. Rather floral, and quite sweet with notes of toasted barley, almond and a tinge of honey.

Palate: The palate is perfectly poised with notes of barley malt, hot buttered toast, a little honey, and some aniseed spiciness.

Finish: A touch of smoke on the tail, alongside plenty of thick malt and sweetness.

After you’ve experienced Dewar’s 12-Year-Old neat, you can then go on to appreciate its more complex flavours in an Original Highball, invented by Tommy Dewar in 1892. Or, try an Aromatic Highball – created by Fraser Campbell in 2019 – which is a rich, refreshing, sweet and herbaceous version of this now-classic drink.

When you’re connecting with colleagues or clients, this is a whisky that easily generates interest and conversation. It’s ideal when socialising over meals and also makes a great gift of discovery for friends and family that are starting their whisky journey.

Dewar’s 12 is part of our house series. Ranging from 12- to 15- and 18-year-old, the expertise of our Master Blenders and the extra time spent ageing in oak casks brings out clear differences in scent, taste and sensation, with each age having its own personal character, taste and style. They simply must be experienced.

Combining wit, grit and craftsmanship, John Dewar & Sons LTD has grown from a small wine and spirits merchant shop in Perth, Scotland, to become a globally renowned and celebrated Blended Scotch Whisky brand. Dewar’s 12-Year-Old is a fundamental part of that history and is a whisky to be experienced.

In 1987, numerous cases of still perfect Dewar's Scotch were recovered by underwater archaeologist E. Lee Spence from the shipwreck of the SS Regina, which sank in Lake HuronNorth America in 1913.

The scotch and champagne recovered from the sunken SS Regina were auctioned off in Chicago, Illinois in June of 1988. People queued up for the wine auction, with scotch and champagne fetching up to $90.00 a bottle. Around 300 bottles of French champagne and Scotch whiskey were salvaged from the Regina, bringing in a total of $3,460 at auction. SCUBA NEWS

    I've tried it and for a blended tis OK. 12yo too. Wouldn't pay 30 for it but for £20 it's as good as if not better than the blends and NAS malts at the same price.

    Average blended whisky, there are many better than this for less including Famous Grouse & Whyte & Mackay

    Oh dear this is a very low grade over priced whisky then even when on offer! Asda has W+M at £18l with double discount that’s the only time I’ll buy a bottle as a mixer thanks for the heads up.

    At £29 it's expensive for a Blend. Even at £20 it's pushing it. I'm going cold. Whilst the price has been 'reduced' I think it was artificially high to start with for what it is. As such I'm voting cold. Sorry. But do keep posting !

    Never had this myself, but everywhere else seems to be selling for £30-35. Is It really a bad whiskey for £20?

    Is this online only? Can't seem to find it when I look at a stock check for in stores.
