Customer Rating

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.

    This is a wonderful light and fruity drink. Plenty of fresh green fruit heather and a medium finish. A perfectly wonderful scotch for the summer months.

    I have had about four bottles of this single malt. The taste has been consistent, complex, smooth and has some honey sweetness.

    Incredibly smooth and full of flavor but lacks the peaty smokiness I prefer. No question this is one of the better single malts I have tried, and perfect for when I am in the mood for a lighter less smoky whisky.

    Absolutely gorgeous - light fruit, hint of spice - delicate, friendly & a little bit cuddly. 4/5

    This is the perfect whisky for my palate. I love the warm vanilla/pear/honey. And I agree with others that a drop of water really opens this up. In the last 20 years, I have most likely bought 15 bottles and it has always been very consistent. Perfect dram to introduce new whisky lovers with. I give it 5 stars, because it is the whisky I have bought the most often. I've had better & more expensive. But this is MY whisky.

    Brilliant dram. The tasting notes are bang on. I contend that there is a faint peat note and not a peated smoke note when you add water. Definitely not like your typical Islay or Talisker 10. Worth a try and a superb whisky to introduce people to single malts. Make sure you try it with water. The flavour profile mutates. In a good way

    A lovely dram that is sweet, smooth and very easy to drink. The light honey flavour makes for a gentle drink I would be happy to sip on all day. At £40 (time of writing), it is such a steal too!

    Maybe it was the day, or maybe it was being in the Highlands. But this has become my preferred sipping whisky when I want a slow drink with friends. Love Laphroaig and Lagavulin but Dalwinnie is my current favorite.

    My lovely fiance got this as a gift for us, and I can't believe we didn't discover it sooner. Dalwhinnie 15 reminds me somewhat of a smoke-less, lighter Oban 14, and is about as delicious and enjoyable. There's a perfectly balanced rich sweetness to this whisky that has warm fruit and honey notes. This is one you'll always want to keep a bottle of.

    The whisky was lovely as always and the handkerchief was a nice little gift. I'll always buy my whisky from the whisky exchange.

    It’s smoother than OBAN and Chardhu but also has a tinkling flavor that burns your tongue filling it with the best flavor. Must Try^^^

    It was one of the of the options on the shelf in the market. I watched the Ralfy' s on Youtube review and decided to buy it but it was a total disappointment. It was very harsh for a 15yrs old single malt, didn't like it. It was my second malt whiskey that I had bought (#1 was Singleton Duff 12) . Now I'm drinking my third, Glenfiddich 12 and the difference is very obvious. I know that the taste can change from one bottle to another and from the reviews I think I got the bad one but shouldn't there be a standard considering that this was the most expensive one I've had so far .

    Those last 3 years make all the difference in the world. This is an excellent single malt (I'm not going to use an Scotch-snob comments about notes and the like). This has got to be one of the best deals on the single-malt market. At seventy quid a bottle (USD), it is a reasonably priced treasure. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I would reserve those ratings for the ultra class of Scotch.

    I really love the flavors of this scotch, not to mention that it is so smooth with no harsh after bite, I can tell you here in Texas where I live this whiskey would cost you around $65.00 or more now per bottle. In New York a bottle will cost you $124.00 per bottle. When I look for a good bottle of whiskey this is one I always purchase, and one that I love to sip not not drink like its water.
