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.

    The nose is pleasant, opens up with vanilla, warm raisins and fruitcake and a light floral tone. The taste is pleasant, albeit a bit short. I do however find that the finish slides into a not-so-pleasant bitterness. I was convinced that this is a good whisky to ‘start’ with but in hindsight, if someone asked me for my humble and no-way-near-expert opinion I’d personally rather pour them a Aberlour A’bunah or a Glengoyne which still has an accessible roundness and interesting complexity and leaves nothing but a long lingering pleasantness.

    This was the whiskey that really dragged me into the whiskey world. A brilliant whiskey and a personal favourite.

    What sets aside and makes Dalwinnei so special from other malts is the amazing gentle first flavour followed by a cascade of different after flavours and a degree of warmth which, whist giving you a definite feel of strength, is by no means to sharp or harsh as to leave you with anything other than a lingering pleasant sweet after taste. To me , there is no other malt or Speyside like it. How can so many beautifully aligned flavours come from such a pale hew scotch. Simply a delight made even better when taken from a chilled cut crystal glass, which when held to the light, allows you to enjoy the colours even more. No wonder then that my wife presents me with a bottle on special occasions.

    I had never really been a drinker of straight liquor...mostly a beer and wine preference. But as my wife and I happen to be about half-Scottish, we wanted to visit the homeland, so to speak. In September we finally made it to Scotland, and one of the stops on our 6-day trip was to the Dalwhinnie distillery. After the tour and taste-testing, we came home we three bottles: the 15 year classic, the Winter's Gold, and a Distiller's blend similar to the one offered for sale here. They are fantastic! My favorite is the Winter's Gold. Put that baby in the fridge, and when ready to partake, pour it into a whiskey glass on top of a couple drops of water, and enjoy! We want to go back and visit the region where the more smokey whiskies are distilled.

    Incredible whisky. Been tasting a lot lately and this one js a stand out. The tasting notes on here are pretty accurate I think but actually I spent most of my time loving the fact that I struggled to equate the flavour of this beauty with anything else. Its just a pleasure to drink; mouthfeel is lovely and smooth and coats every crevice of the mouth. Nose is wonderful and inviting. The taste carries you away like only the really special whiskies do. Not too powerful and full of sweet flavours. Delicious.
