A classic deluxe blend that has stood the test of time. Based on Glenkinchie with traces of other more northerly distilleries, Dimple benefits from an extended marrying period. Rich, smooth and complex.
Picked this up recently in the US for $37, and I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of this blend. It's spicy on the initial palate, with a bit of clover honey, cinnamon and baked apple. The grain is fairly apparent, but in this case it's a positive as it's some rather good grain used, and it adds a nice creamy texture to the mouth feel. For the price, it's certainly worth a look at and I believe I will be buying another bottle of this at some point in the near future!

"Nose" (undiluted): Dandelion, malt notes, apple juice and wisps of peat. I mean wisps or was that my imagination? That's how faint it was. "Palate" (undiluted): Sweet Graham crackers, some maltiness, chased by a spiciness that quicky degenerates into graininess. Also an apple cider aspect to this flavor profile. "Finish" (undiluted):
The spiciness of the palate that I said turned grainy does not leave on the finish.

Tried it for the first time at a relative's. Quite a smooth whisky indeed. Pleasant, lingering taste with no side effects. The name Dimple is deceptive, however - I thought it was an Indian whisky! Must buy it!

I got given this as a gift. Whilst it's certainly not bad, of the whisky I own, it's my least favourite. Very drinkable - but others are better. For a good, cheap blend I'd recommend Nikka from the Barrel; for a great cheap-ish blend go for the 1990 Sheep Dip - not perfect but very, very good indeed.

my dad had this whisky during second world war. He had to put his name on a waiting list for months to get a bottle. now he s 90 and gets a bottle every birthday and christmas. They used to make a lamp out of empty bottle.
