A quarter bottle of Dalwhinnie 15yo, the Highland representative in Diageo's Classic Malts series. 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.Tasting Notes (1)
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 mild and refreshing. Crisp to start and gets slightly sweeter towards the end, with a pleasant honey taste that lingers nicely. Great summer whisky.
Would go well as a digestif. For me the nose was lovely: silky smooth and slightly sweet. On the palate I found it to be ever so slightly smoky but quite rich and creamy, almost like a lighter version of a Clynelish 14. Gentle and pleasant mouthfeel and a finish that reminded me of a gorse moor. Not the most complex but a pleasant daytime or early evening dram and not expensive.
I love it, it's a nice gentle alternative to the Oban 14 year, which I also enjoy.
First tasted in Edinburgh based on a challenge to a whiskey afficionado to find a whiskey I would enjoy.
A nice addition to the shelf, opposite my Lagavulin. Enjoy the soft roundness. Would suggest it to anyone who doesn''t like strong peaty flavors.
