Dewar's 12 Blended Scotch Whisky

Dewar's 12 Blended Scotch Whisky is on my TOP SHELF.  Very smooth and delicious which makes it really enjoyable. In today's blog, I intend to cover the following-

-Brief history behind this distillery
-Tasting notes
-SJ's Rating & Review
-SJ's Pro tip

It was founded in 1886 by the sons of John Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery and is the only Scotch whisky distillery built by the Dewar family. The presence of a superb natural water source in the Pitilie Burn(or small river) which runs past the distillery into the River Tay was a big factor in the decision. 

Now about Dewar's 12 years double-aged whisky. It rests in secondary oak barrels once the blend is created. This is where the magic is and the costly process is what gives an extra smoothness to the final whisky. Enough talk, it is now time for some sampling. Enjoy!
