Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Smoky burnt lemon peel, fresh milled grains, Muscat, and shaved coconut make for an enticing bouquet. Orange marmalade and spearmint are smoothed out by honey, cashew, and sweet smoke. Citrus and toffee lend to a bright and energetic finish. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Tried and True Award)(Great Value)(Finalist).April/2018
Whisky Advocate 89 points - A straightforward proposition of honey, vanilla sponge cake, barley notes, hints of apple, fresh banana, melon, and bundles of dry straw. It’s a sweetheart: soft vanilla fudge, heather honey, banana-topped banoffee pie, fudge, vanilla sandwich cookies, barley sugar, and lemon peel, with hardly any spice in the early phase. The finish has a snag of pepper at the end, but this is gorgeously tasty, with smooth vanilla fudge all the way. Reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Spring 2018).April/2018
Known as “The Ancestor” after John Dewar, our founder, this impeccable blend is the result of a time honored process. After we blend the whiskies, we marry the blend in vintage oak casks and let it harmonize to perfection. It’s what our family did then. It’s what we do now.
Just as expected.
Tastes great. Will plan to buy if I get store pick up option in Metuchen, NJ for my online purchases
Dewar's Scotch 12 Year The Ancestor 0 1.75L
What a great way to end the day but with a glass of Dewars on the rocks and a cigar. The taste is second to none and very smooth. I wasn't a big "scotch guy" until I tried the 12 Year Aged. If you try it, you'll love it.
