— A well balanced, very easy scotch to drink. Not overly smoky, not too sweet and a little sour. For the price, it’s great!

— Really good for the price point. Smoke flavor from the mezcal barrels is tasty, albeit a little thinner than the smoke of a peaty scotch.

Christopher,
Classic Dewar’s with more accented sweetness, smoke and herbal/citrus highlights. An improvement over white label, and definitely more than a novelty

Craig,
An improvement over the regular Dewar's, probably even better than the 12 year-old, but still NOT a great dram.
 
John
John,
Interesting flavor due to the Mezcal aging. Good for the price, but probably not for everyone.

Great smoothness but very peppery after taste

Jasson,
Mildly interesting. All the hallmarks of Dewar's are there, but the nose and finish are different. Pleasant, actually. Frankly, it's more complex and interesting than it's parent blend (White) and it costs less... Definitely give it a try if you see it on the shelf.
