Christopher,
Virtually undrinkable. Lot's of peat and tastes of contaminated water.
Dewar's Ancestor De Luxe
SCOTT,
I bought these bottles on a cruise ship. (3) in Cherry wood boxes, (1) loose. 3 have not been opened, loose bottle had no box (was broken open in rough seas. I purchased this one for 1/2 price, is surely the best Scotch I have ever tasted in all my 65 years!!!

Every day Scotch with no bite!
Dewar's Double Double 21 Year Old
David,
Love the Scotch. Very smooth and great aftertaste. Does not have the stronger smoke and peat I love, but still a wonderful dram! Nose of fruit and licorice, caramel in the aftertaste, no bite.
Dewar's Double Double 21 Year Old
Greg,
Decent Scotch, BUT maybe I just didn't pay attention to the details enough this is a small bottle (only 375ml) so about 1/3rd of normal sized bottles. It is a pretty good Scotch but for the price and for this size its not better than most 12 or 15 year olds that can be had for a full bottle at the same price. I mistakenly assumed that because most Dewar bottles are such. Good price that it could be feasible that a full bottle of these could be found at $60 but that's not the case. No pun intended... Sorry to not focus on the flavor profile or Scotch itself, it was just kind-of disappointing the moment I opened the box. Cheers !

Ben,
I'd rate this scotch right down the middle given the affordability of a bottle and that it is a decent sipping scotch on a budget. Not terrible, but not great either.

Pedestrian. Best used with ice and cola.

When you are all out of everything else.

Brenda,
You can task the oak at the end. Very smooth
Dewar's Double Double 21 Year Old
Paul,
I’m a fan of an Oloroso matured and / or finished whisky. These casks typically do wonders for spirit. This does not disappoint, not one bit. Definitely a nice smooth spicy note present that develops in the mouth. Over a couple of minutes a fruity note softens and brings balance to the whisky. There’s a pronounced peach note and a beautiful warming spice. Ooomph.

Tyler,
Stocking stuffer whisky, Part III. I was honestly surprised how much I liked this. The aroma is grape must, doughy grains, sugar glaze. Flavor has earthy, chocolatey round notes, and toast. Sweet honey finish. Really punching above its weight.
Dewar's Double Double 21 Year Old
Ryan,
A good bourbon is my drink of choice; however, this scotch was outstanding! Complex flavor and still some sweetness.
Dewar's 8 Year Old Ilegal Smooth
Christopher,
Classic Dewar’s with more accented sweetness, smoke and herbal/citrus highlights. An improvement over white label, and definitely more than a novelty
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Christopher,
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
Dewar's 8 Year Old Ilegal Smooth
Craig,
An improvement over the regular Dewar's, probably even better than the 12 year-old, but still NOT a great dram.
Dewar's 12 Year Old
James,
Not for me
Dewar's 15 Year Old
guest,
Light, simple, thin body. Confected sugary taste. Almost nothing redeeming here.
Dewar's Double Double 27 Year Old
Christopher,
Lives up to the whisky of the year hype. Smooth with great texture and warmth. Only real issues are finding it and that it comes in a 375mL bottle. It’s going to the back of the shelf with my Glenmorangie Signet - sipped with friends and family on special occasions

TR,
Outstanding blend!

Josh,
Caramel and Peat
Dewar's Double Double 21 Year Old
Kyle,
I enjoyed the flavor profile here. Great dark fruit and dry sherry influence. If you like something with a little more wood influence, this one is for you
Dewar's 12 Year Old
Brian,
I enjoyed the floral notes on the nose, but most of all the slight spice and just a touch of smoke on the palate. A decent lower-priced Scotch in my opinion. I’m going to keep a bottle in my bar.
Dewar's Double Double 21 Year Old
Matthew,
Bought this on a whim as the price was very good, and I must say it was very enjoyable and largely comparable to many younger entry level sherry cask single malts. As a blend at 21 years old this was highly enjoyable at a reasonable price for the age statement. Great sherry taste and it was very smooth and I really liked the mild spicy finish at the back. I will want another one of these.

Ashton,
Love scotch and whiskeys but unfortunately this is one of my least favorite.
Dewar's 8 Year Old Caribbean Rum Cask Finish
Jim,
I can taste the sugar cane at the end of sip. Very smooth scotch with oak and smoke favor and aroma.
Dewar's 8 Year Old Ilegal Smooth
John,
Interesting flavor due to the Mezcal aging. Good for the price, but probably not for everyone.
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Andrew,
For a blended scotch it was very smooth, slightly sweeter than I typically go for, but very enjoyable drink
Dewar's 12 Year Old
Hunter,
Veerry oaky. Took a couple tries to grow on me but it is too unique to pass up, especially at the dewars price.
Dewar's 25 Year Old
Jon,
So smooth for a blended
Dewar's White Label
Hunter,
The Best whiskey under $20. The perfect balance of what makes scotch special. Sweet and peat in perfect harmony with one not overpowering the other, and just when you think it may be too light, the smoke hits you. This should not be so cheap and underestimated.
Dewar's 8 Year Old Caribbean Rum Cask Finish
Josh,
I was utterly disappointed with this one. I'm not a scotch snob in the slightest and actually have only enjoyed a small number that I've tried. This has a disgusting finish and aftertaste. I tried it neat, on ice, and with some soda water. Couldn't stand it regardless how I tried and will never buy it again. AVOID.
Dewar's 18 Year Old
Kurt,
It’s good not great, that’s the bottom line. Smooth and easy to drink. Sweet & buttery with a lingering floral/clove finish. For an 18 year it is very mellow.
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Lamar,
Very smooth flavor. Excellent smell. All around solid experience
Dewar's Double Double 27 Year Old
Paul,
What can I say? This hard to find gem is delicious. The profile is wonderfully complex. I now have both the 32 and 27 in my collection and I’m on the lookout for the 21. Outstanding and highly recommended.
Dewar's 12 Year Old
Dave,
First blend we've had in a long while. Reminded us why we don't like them. Too sweet.
Dewar's 12 Year Old
Alan,
The smoky and peaty characters are smoothed by blending until this resembles a good (not great) Highland or Speyside Scotch. For those of us that are in love with Islay peatiness, it seems a little too mild for a "premium" spirit. Good, but not distinctive enough to make it worth more than the Dewars White Label (which is also very good).
Dewar's White Label
Alan,
I consider this to be THE Scotch for aperitif Scotch-and-soda. Yes, it's not in the same category as single-malt powerhouses such as Lagavulin 16 or Ardbeg Ugadail (both some of my all-time favorites for neat sipping or just savoring the aromas over a long evening), but the White Label can hold its flavor, even with soda and ice, which makes it ideal for the early evening pre-dinner cocktail -- fresh and unassuming but not a wallflower.
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Emmett,
A bit sharp, mellow earthy flavors (nuts, smoked wood) soft after taste. Pleasant in the after tasting
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Josh,
Very smooth and great flavor! This is a must for any home bar.
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Jacob,
Very smooth and easy to drink when you're less experienced in whisk(e)y.
Dewar's 25 Year Old
Sean,
Recommended, a simply delicious dram. Lives up to the hype.
Dewar's 12 Year Old
Nate,
A very serviceable whiskey if not a bit lacking in character
Dewar's White Label
Nate,
About the worst whiskey I have ever had, I don't remember anything as painful
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Omar,
Smooth and great on the rocks. It's a must on your vault.
Dewar's White Label
Mac,
Nose: Sweet and peaty, not much else Taste: Slight smokiness, quite sweet, almost tastes watered down Finish: smooth and very drinkable. Just slightly lacking
Dewar's 8 Year Old Ilegal Smooth
Joel,
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.
Dewar's 12 Year Old
Christopher,
A classic with a backbone of peaty smoke.
Dewar's 8 Year Old Ilegal Smooth
Gregory,
Great smoothness but very peppery after taste
