Proof66 Notes

The Dewar's 15yr Blended Scotch is known as "The Monarch" and named for a 19th century painting called The Monarch of the Glen by Sir Edwin Landseer. The scotch was released as a limited edition by master blender Stephanie Macleod who used the painting as an inspiration. The scotch is aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks (before "marrying" together in a single batch). They suggest looking for flavors of honey, toffee, and coconut among others.

As the name might suggest, the company John Dewar and Sons was founded in 1846 by founder John Dewar, Sr and his sons John, Jr and Thomas Dewar. The began in 1846 as a seller of spirits and began experimenting with what turned out to be very popular blends. They were the first company to offer its scotch in bottles rather than simply casks. They went through a series of ownership changes--as many companies in Scotland did—in the latter half of the 20th century. They were finally sold to Bacardi in 1998. Today they own a number of different, well-known distilleries (themselves under the umbrella of Bacardi) that contribute to their blends as well as producing their own single-malts.
