.dewars – 12yo

“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.”

40% abv, €30, blend

Nose: sweet, marzipan, fruity, ripe mangos, nuts, almonds
Palate: sweet, marzipan, spicy, creamy, salted butter 
Finish: short, sweet, creamy, butter, a hint of milk chocolate
Mark: +++++ 
Conclusion: Yeah… They have a nice story about this blend, but she is nothing more than just that. a blend. And a rather bland blend at that. Created for mixing, that’s my guess.
