Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

12. Oct 2019
We do not want to become a malt snob, do we? Never lose appreciation of a simple but honest classic! Known as 'the honey malt', Dalwhinnie 15 is a great choice for beginners to set out on their whisky journey. Notes of heather, green pears and barley sugar complement the honeyed aroma. After a sweet, rich and full-bodied arrival, spices build up quickly with a mildly dry and bitter edge - but well-measured. The aftertaste is gentle, citric and wood-driven with hints of cinnamon and apple juice. A characterful Highlander that should not be overlooked.
RATING: 3.5/5.0 ≙ 84 pts

Nosing: Big fruit right away, sweetness, honey, figs

Taste: very fruity, sweet, vanilla, honey and citrus, maybe some peat at the end, definitely some spiciness with nice subtle hints of oak.

Finish: Quite long and sweet with little hints of peat.

Comment: Exceptionally well balanced and complex. Arrival is intense and sweet, finish is long and peaty. Simply delightful and one of my favorites.

Nosing: Pear Pineapple Apple Sweet

Taste: intense Oak Fruit Honey Zitrus Sherry

Finish: typical Dalwhinnie signitures, long, intense spicy, sweet oaky

Comment: For its price (cca USD50) it is a winner with me, you get a very intense and complex, well balanced overall whisky. I will buy it again.
