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
- Very tasty. Complex with several ingrediens in both nose, taste and finish
- 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.
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.
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.
In the long and warming finish, I get a whiff of
smoke, while the warm fruit fades gently.
- 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)
