Whisky Reviews for Dallas Dhu 1981 DT

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.30 points

  1. Sonett scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty. Complex with several ingrediens in both nose, taste and finish

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    While I feel cask 421 was more complex, they are so
    close that it would be unfair to give this one a lesser score. Excellent Dallas
    Dhu! Thanks, Pieter.
    • Nose
      Ha, the nose is almost identical, although the aromas
      are presented in a different order (does that make sense?). First I get the
      furniture polish, then tropical fruit. Kiwi signs in. It is a little less waxy
      than its younger brother and lacks the coconut. But if offers pineapple
      instead. Again a tremendously aromatic nose.
    • Taste
      Oily and spicy. Spicier than its predecessor with
      chili pepper and nutmeg. Nice warm apple pie. Baked banana. Gooseberries and
      pink grapefruit. Yes, this is clearly a twin of cask 421 that I tried before. It
      can take some water, but I feel it needs none.
    • Finish
      In the long and warming finish, I get a whiff of
      smoke, while the warm fruit fades gently.

  3. Medea scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Clear bright yellow.
    Again a nice orange nose with hints of peat, some metallic, wet stones and on
    Palate a fantastic fruit acid. Spicy barrel flavors. Slight pungency, alc. Effervescent powder, peach.
    Very tasty and long.
    Even more fruity with water (bitter orange / citrus)
