Whisky reviews for Dallas Dhu 1979 GM

8 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.69 points.

  1. Gråmantel scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Sample. Part of a live tasting, saved 2cl for a more deep dive into it.
    • Nose
      A sour wood note at first. Grapefruit. Grassy. Cocoa. White wine. An old cask note after a long time in the glass. Leather. Green tobacco and a quite pleasant soft vanilla. You get a small notion of the age. This one got a better nose after an hour in the glass.
    • Taste
      Not as good as I thought, it's hard to keep the hopes in check with these older more expensive malts. Expected something oilier. Not very complex, a bit stale even. A somewhat bitter taste. Sour ferment. Green apples. Cardboard.
    • Finish
      Medium to Long. Fresh ginger. Drying. The finish is better than the taste. Mouth-filling, a sour note remains.
