Dalwhinnie 15yo is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky – elegant, smooth and medium-bodied, with a light, fruity palate and a whiff of heather on the finish. Part of Diageo's Classic Malt range.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Clean and fresh, with heather honey, pears, a touch of toffee and a soft floral note.

    Palate: Bright and fruity, but also rich, with notes of steamed syrup pudding and sponge cake, with a little cinnamon and nutmeg.

    Finish: Just enough spice to match the fruit. Lovely balance.

  • 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.

    Very simple and subtle, perfect after a Sunday roast. Not a stand out single malt for me though. Would have scored 3.5 if scoring halves was an option. Bare in mind I''m a laphroig/ardbeg drinker when considering my score.

    Very lovely. At first I thought a little dull. But after a few days, or weeks, it''s a very pleasant and relaxing dram

    Beautiful. On the nose you could smell the honey and summer fruit. I did add a drop of water to it in order to reduce the sharpness in the throat. Very nice whisky.

    One of my all time favourites. Fabulous nose heavy on vanilla with pear and apple. Honeyed palate with more apple flowing into a sweet but spicy finish with a tiny hint of smoke. Lovely. A classic Highland Dram.

    A light, heathery classic. I always have time for this Dalwhinnie.

    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!
