Aged: 12 years
Product of: United Kingdom
After a 12 years maturation and blending, Dewar's 12 is returned to individual oak casks to undergo approximately 6 months marrying, hence its being described as 'double aged'. Although a blend of various malts and gran whiskies, Dewar's is heavily influenced by Aberfeldy single malt whisky.
