Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate
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 smokey, 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 centre and very gentle, it's that chunkiness in the middle that is the secret to its beauty.

Limited character, and despite the 15 years and 43%, rather thin tasting with a not-quite-balanced sweet-sharp pairing.
Beautiful subtle notes from this unique Spey malt, a definite must for the collection! Personally... despite having grown up next to Benromach and Dallas Dhu distilleries in the heart of the Whiskey Trail, Dalwhinnie is my favourite!
a great bet for the price point. a subtle balance of sweetness and peat. delicious straight or with a small bit of spring water. what's not to like?
Definatly underated. I think it is very well made and there is nothing not to like about it. If you are looking for a kick of strong peat then go elswhere. I would strongly recomend this to anyone, its quality just shines through.At 15 years old and 43% its spot on.
Dalwhinnie is a subtle, well-balanced, elegant yet bland and somewhat unambitious dram. If these notes are also part of your tasting notes of this dram, then you got it, this is what Dalwhinnie 15 is about. It is one of the most approachable and easily drinkable dram ever, do NOT expect to be overwhelmed by it because you won't be. Good and dependable everyday dram for the money.
I prefer to drink it than talk about it.
15 years of age and 43% are a much better starting point than most standard malts. Dalwhinnie is a pleasant and approachable medium weight highlander. Delicate and delicious with light honeyed fruit. A very enjoyably drink that is often overlooked and underrated.
An excellent whiskey that is very sweet and easy to drink. Perfect for starting of with, before moving on to heavier, smokier stuff
Sniffly on the nose, leading to a pork pie on the way down and a hint of cheese and pickle sandwich on the finish. All in all a very nice picnic.
Starts out with a bite then smooths into a symphony of sweet smooth fruity complexity, then finishes with a woody note of fruit. As good as anything twice the price.
