This is a review of Dalwhinnie 15 bottled at 43%. The sample for this review came from my own bottle.
N: Honey, arrowroot cookies, floral, slightly herbal, a whisp of smoke so feint I don’t notice it every time.
P: Dark honey, malt, baklava, mild stone fruits (pear and peach), very slightly herbal again.
F: Short to medium. Nothing new here. Honey and malt that fades pretty quickly with a slight bitterness.
Overall: I’m not a big fan of this one. It pretty inoffensive and has no obvious flaws but is a little flat, simple and forgettable for me to really enjoy. A step up from Glenlivet/Glenfiddich 12 but not something I will be craving any time soon.
