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

Comment:
I've heard this drum has a quite norm one, it means not worse but not better. But reality is that Dalwhinney has a quite typical fruitiness one with sweet and wood flavor. Very different from my expectation. And finish is a bit long . This drum is the worthy to buy. I recommend.

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.
