Dewar's Special Reserve 12 year old, 43%

Price: $32 Issue: Winter 2000 Reviewer: John Hansell

Gold-amber color. Toffee, fruit, and a wisp of smoke underpin floral aromas. On the palate, flavors are nicely balanced and harmoniously interwoven. Gently sweet toffee notes up front gradually yield to drier notes on the finish, with soft, delicate fruit flavors throughout.
