Dewar's dates back to 1846, when one John Dewar, Sr. started blending Whisky, one of the first Scots to do so. By 1896 his sons made the brand a global market leader. It's hit some ups and downs through the years, had its ownership changed a couple times, until finally settling in its new home in the hands of Bacardi in 1998. Their Scotch has been a hit on US soil for a while, holding the no. 1 spot in bottles sold.
Dewar's 15 Year Old was crafted by Dewar's first female Master Blender Stephanie Macleod, who drew inspiration from Sir Edwin Landseer's painting "The Monarch of the Glen". It's a combination of a whopping 40 different liquids that have been aged in Sherry as well as Bourbon casks. The oldest among them is 27 years old! The blend is then finished in oak casks, giving all the delicious flavors a chance to come together.
Love this scotch, very smooth with a slight burn. I usually drink scotch straight but was amazed at the flavor that came out when I added a few drops of water. Went from an ok scotch to one of my favorites
smooth and creamy, very light on the smoke which I like.
I'll keep one of these on my shelf.
Serve your neighbors and every day friends. They won't forget you!
Notes of honey, vanilla, dried orange/fruit cake, and a touch of peat smoke. Definitely more refined for a blend and with a medium lasting finish
For a blended scotch it was very smooth, slightly sweeter than I typically go for, but very enjoyable drink
Very smooth flavor. Excellent smell. All around solid experience
A bit sharp, mellow earthy flavors (nuts, smoked wood) soft after taste. Pleasant in the after tasting
Very smooth and great flavor! This is a must for any home bar.
Very smooth and easy to drink when you're less experienced in whisk(e)y.
Smooth and great on the rocks. It's a must on your vault.
Excellent at its price-point. Dewar's blends start low and ramp up quickly. I was never a fan of White Label...too harsh/mediciney. Step up to Dewar's 12 and it's decent. Here we have the 15, exponentially better than the aforementioned two.
Not much on the nose. Sweet from start to finish with subtle notes of spice and smoke on the back-end. Thoroughly enjoyable neat.
Very smooth and enjoyable on the rocks, my preference was with one large ice cube. Was not as enjoyable straight.
Great for old fashions or similar drinks. Hard to take straight.
Solid and always dependable
Smooth, yet complex
I don't dabble in Scotch that often but I purchased this bottle on a whim and I was blown away. Its smooth with notes of honey and mild spiciness. I have a Dewars 12 year and it does not come close in comparison.
Good, solid, blended scotch. Some mild smoke, dark and smooth. I am a scotch drinker and like more smoke than less.
Not bad. Some smokey noted. Prefer Pinch 15 yr old. Better finish
Decent flavor but nothing distinct about it
Not usually a fan of Scotch but this one is different.
This was an absolutely amazing drink, smooth to start with a little smoke at the end.
Great flavor. Went down smooth. It was good at room temp or on the rocks.
Overall a decent scotch. Very good finish to me.
Not a fan of the dewars I like more the bourbon and regular whiskey
Still my "GO T" blend. Can't beat the price.
I haven't a clue. Most of the spirits I order are gifts for friends, and family. I will ask the person who I gifted this to what their thoughts are.
Not horrible on the rocks but I can do without that slight peat taste.
It's really smooth
As far as Scotch goes, probably not in my top 5, but still a great sipping whisky for the price. Doesn’t have the depth of flavor found in the next higher price bracket, but goes down smooth.
excellent taste slight smokey tones definitely better then regular Dewars.
I like the smoky finish. Drinking Dewars for me was best with a few cubes, very smooth. I will add this to my must haves.
Sweet and spicy with a bit of a smoky finish. Very complex and enjoyable flavor. Smooth and easy to drink. One of my favorites.
The last time I had Dewars was in college when I didn't have a refined palate. No complex flavors on this one, but very smooth to drink (I prefer on ice and let it melt a tad).
I'm normally a rum drinker, however, I found this was quite easy to drink and not as harsh or spicy as I thought it would be. I would buy this again.
it was very smooth at the beginning then a nice oak finish for a little bite
Sweet up front but with a mild smoke at the end.
Not a favorite, musty and sweet but nit much more depth of flavor. Prefer more flavorful selections.
It was very smooth. Didn’t have too much peat taste in it that makes me dislike some Scotches. At the beginning sipe I could taste the wooden casks and then it melted into a nice warmth.
Poured it on the rocks, loved the initial sweet notes on the tongue that went into a warm spice and finished off with a mild sweetness. Delicious scotch
Smooth and easy. Flavors spiral hit the mark. The perfect blend.
Dewars is always my choice for a blended scotch whisky. The 15 year old is especially nice and the price is right.
This was very smooth and very delicious bottle of Scotch. I was very happy that I chose wisely.
This is one of my favorites scotches. Love the Smokey taste and smooth digestion.
It definitely has a little bit of a smokey flavor to it. I am enjoying it a lot.
Very smooth, very enjoyable
It has a very good taste. Great drink after a good meal with a cigar.
Very smooth from start to finish. Lovely honey and toffee flavors. Really enjoyed this
Definitely my regular drinker. Great for the person who likes a whiskey with a bite but not over powering. Love it
Supper smooth scotch whiskey. I’m not normally a scotch drinker, but this is bringing me more towards scotch and I hope to find more like it or better.
Love it very smooth would definitely recommend
Very limited Scotch Experience. This was great. I'm now enjoying regularly. Neat.
All my prior scotch experience has been with Isla Peats so this was a first for me. Surprisingly smooth with a pleasant finish. Touch of sweetness throughout. Very pleased with this overall.
Smooth and tasty! Not overly Smokey either
Of the three or four blended Scotch as I have tried this is the first one that I thoroughly enjoy. Are usually try to stick with a single malt but this is very pleasant and easy to drink nat. Definitely will purchase again!
Good middle-of-the-road crowd pleaser, per Dewars' M.O. Mild; fresh apple forward, a little honey, no smoke. Nothing extreme. Probably a good scotch to ease in a newcomer.
My very first Scotch (bear with me, I'm only 25) and I loved it. Drank neat it's smooth like honey with a slow burn.
The taste is very smooth. The scotch taste comes after.
So far the best Scotch I've tasted, though I haven't tasted many...
Sweet and smooth. It doesn't have too much character, but the addition of a few drops of water gives it some life. Decent for the price.
Harsh going down, but the flavor is pretty good. A little sweet. I drank it neat.
Smooth, good with a few drops of cold water.
I am a beginner when it comes to scotch tasting. I did not care for this at all. I am also not a fan of Johnny Walker which this had a very similar taste. I would like to know what notes are similar so that I do not purchase anything similar.
Very smooth is what first came to mind. Not extremely flavorful, but rolled down my throat with a lovely hug. Wonderful for sitting on the back porch and enjoying a sunset.
Thought it was a bit harsh going down, though when I first take a sip it does have a nice sweet flavor. I was not a big fan of drinking it neat, after the first glass I drank the rest with some ice. It's a lot better with some water in it in my opinion.
Blends..It’s just so hard to find good ones. This is smooth as water. The flavor is weak. The flavor doesn’t come even when you swish it in your mouth. Comes at the end once it goes down your throat.
A little bitter for my taste. I would prefer it with a flavor. The smell was great but none came through to the taste. A great sipping whiskey.
A bit sharp around the edges and has a noteable burn but not bad by any means. A little honey sweet, a little spicy, more like a bourbon than a scotch I think. If you like something bourbon-y with a bite this may suit.
I was not pumped on this scotch. It really tastes more like a bourbon. Even with the Sherry cask aging it has such a strong bourbon burn to it that it's not great for neat sipping. Definitely add an ice cube to this one.
Great flavour! I am mostly getting hints of honey and a tiny bit of spice. Really good bottle, especially for the price.
