A vintage bottle distilled in 1963 and bottled in 1975.
We tasted Dewar's Ancestor 12 (1970s) at Meeting No. 49 on July 27, 2016. We rated it very highly at 3.09 out of 5. Dewar's Ancestor 12 (1970s) ranks 113th overall in Scotch. At a street price of $160, this spirit is expensive given the our rating of it.
Character abounds in this spirit that is meant for a more introspective mood.
Slight peat on the end of it. I like this one a lot.
Furry on the checks, like an inside beard. Nose has that first hint of new rubber tires before becoming overwhelming or rude.
Soft and fruity. Tastes of brown butter and creme brûlée on the finish.
Leather and apple. Rich and heavy.
Not much for a nose. Nice subtle chocolate smoke up front. I like the mineral finish. Pretty tame.
Sweet aroma. Also caramel. Very soft flavor, in comprison to others.
