Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #620036 Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Along with Cragganmore, this is one of the underrated members of the original Classic Six. Quite why has always slightly baffled me. OK, it isn't smoky, but the nose has a deep, soft, honeyed sweetness: think caramelized fruits, hints of thick cream, and a light touch of fennel and sharp citrus. Thick in the center and very gentle, it's that chunkiness in the middle that is the secret to its beauty. (DB, Summer 2012) Inner quote mark

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Opening aroma is assertive, dry, with peppery scents of barley husk, grainy oil and cracked wheat wafer; seven more minutes bring out a mildly sweeter, slightly vanilla bean, brown rice-like side. Palate entry is pleasantly prickly, textured and moderately sweet; at midpalate, the taste profile turns stunningly sappy and resin-like. Finishes dry to off-dry and keenly resiny. *Best Buy* Inner quote mark (8/2005)

K&L Notes

If you're looking for a Highland malt, then the Dalwhinnie is for you. This spirit is totally unique: it is the only distillery that is allowed to use the spring water that flows from Lochan an Doire-Uaine, and it has the soft grassiness of a Lowland malt with the firm character of nearby Speyside. Notes of heather and peat on the nose, with a delicate, honeyed citrus palate with vanilla and anise accents that is soft and lingering. Satisfying.

Dalwhinnie 15 year is one of those wonderful malts that tends to turn non-Scotch people into whisky fanatics. The lightly peated malt of Dalwhinnie is aged to perfect maturity in their excellent 15 year offering and certainly deserves its place in the Classic Malt portfolio. The beautiful distillery produces a fruity style that shows no signs of peat on the nose by the time its 15 years old. Instead, expect toasty oak, amber honey, floral oils and baked apple. The palate is rather sweet with the tiniest hints of smoke popping out at the end. Malty and fresh, this is easy-drinking stuff with plenty of character behind that sense of overt pleasure.
