Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Classic Dalwhinnie aromas of flowers, honey and green fruit – apples and fresh pair. Clean and precise. Nice honeyed warmth, too.

    Palate: Very soft on the palate, with slightly warming honeyed fruit. Soothing texture, with light floral notes mingling with soft fruits and just a touch of spice.

    Finish: Soft spice and sweet honey.

    Comment: Dalwhinnie makes enchanting, easy-drinking drams. Winter’s Gold is in the same vein as the stands 15yo, with soft fruit and gentle heather-honey notes. Very approachable and satisfying.

    I bought this to drink over New Year at the end of 2017. To begin with it was ok, not a patch on Dalwhinnie 15. However, the more months that passed the worse this got. At the end all I could taste was coffee and ethanol. Not pleasant at all. I did learn a lesson from buying this, I will no longer buy any whisky that does not display it's age. Tastes like a young whiskey and for the price should be better. Maybe the idea of freezing it is so you can't taste some of the nasty notes. Won't be buying again.

    Freezing tightens the molecules, hence the close 'gloopy' texture this takes on. It also ruins the taste. Tell me, when has freezing anything increased its flavour? Diageo thinks we're a bit stupid. This is perfectly nice as it should be...AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. Not as good as the 15 though.

    Freezing this dram was the secret as it becomes slightly thicker and the honeyed flavors also become more pronounced on the nose (almost with a little heather also). Enjoyed on a light chilly evening in the Arizona desert @ 60 degrees by the fire. Perfect. Excellent value.

    Freezing this for 24 hours released aromas I didn't taste when it was just at room temperature. As it warms, the honey is released. Highly recommended.

    Absolutely top quality! When you get your head around a whisky served from the Freezer, it has the pour of a Canarian honey rum. A slightly thicker look than a normal malt. It's warm sweet, and long lasting. Because it needs to be served in a chilled glass, a room temperature glass with a cube of ice does the trick as well, and is just as good with the flavour initially. However, as it melts, the flavour naturally dissipates. Nevertheless, gorgeous.

    Absolutely amazing Scotch. I've never tasted anything like it before. Totally changes flavor with every sip, and is smooth like silk. Definitely has become my favorite Scotch.

    Delicious smooth whisky with no bad afterburner taste left on the pallet

    The sweetness can be off putting for some but honestly I don't take much issue with this. It's a nice mellow scotch with a floral nose, honeyed palate, and slightly peppery finish. Not quite my style but still nice enough. Also don't freeze it, you really shouldn't freeze any scotch, this is no exception.

    Tastes like a cheap blend whiskey, v harsh and not as described, i would avoid and go with the 15yr old which is great.

    I do not get any of these reviews, this whisky tastes like a blend, has a rough sharp effect, certainly not sweet or easy to drink. This is not a Dalwhinnie winner, I will go back to 15 year old.. Would not buy this again very disappointed.
