Dalwhinnie 15 is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky. Which Jim Murray awarded 95 points in his Whisky Bible. So it’s not only a great malt but also an excellent value for money. It’s a 15 year old single malt and only marginally more expensive that alternatives at 12 years.

Description

Dalwhinnie 15 is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky. Which Jim Murray awarded 95 points in his Whisky Bible. So it’s not only a great malt but also an excellent value for money. It’s a 15 year old single malt and only marginally more expensive that alternatives at 12 years.

The flavours are simple, but flawless, elegant, smooth and medium-bodied, with a light, fruity palate and a whiff of heather on the finish.

Palate: Malty. Walnuts steeped in manuka honey with vanilla sponge. In addition, gentle smoke weaves its way through the cereal with a touch of spice.

Finish: Long, hints of malty, walnut, almond.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Dalwhinnie 15

Quote 1 “This is an easy drinking whisky, but the slight smoke in the background, and the 43% bottling prevent it from being boring. It reminds me a little of Bushmills 10 so I just poured a drop of that to compare. Bushmills 10 is more floral, tannic (like second-steeped black tea) and thinner on the palate. The Dalwhinnie has less going on on the nose, for me, is more balanced, toffeelike, richer and sweeter on the palate, oilier, and has the nice whiff of smoke. A tiny drop of water brings out saltiness and intensifies the sweetness. Strong toffee. I like both, but probably prefer the Dalwhinnie.”

Quote 2 “I apologise for my amateurish review but I’ll say as I find.

A delicate, smooth whisky. Extremely easy and pleasant to drink. No harsh surprises, no burning of the throat. Just a warm welcome tingle as you allow the liquid to gently slide down.
Possible note of toffee ? Who knows ? Not me ! I know little of peats, bouquets or notes. But I know what I like, and I love this.

And please, NO ICE ! ”
