  1. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Having tasted this on two consecutive days, I'm surprised that on one occasion, the refill sherry influence was more prominent, while on the other, the bourbon-matured components gained the upper hand. At any rate, this is a lovely concoction; Dalwhinnie's stature keeps rising up in my personal estimation. Not undermatured at all, despite the lack of an age statement, and the 48% do it wonders. I might have to go out and get a second bottle !
    • Nose
      Simultaneously dry and slightly acidic, a mix of nutty sherry and bourbonesque juicy fruits. You could also say, vibrant, but with a burnt-dark egde to it. Charcoal and graphite in the background. Umami notes: chicken soup with plenty of lovage seasoning. The characteristic Dalwhinnie honey is there as well, but it is not as prominent as the savory and sour aspects. I find this very classic without being boring.
    • Taste
      Zingy, sparkling-bright attack, on pears and lime juice. The 48% bring in a creamy texture and good body, especially on the mid-palate, when the spirit sweetness hits and the oak comes into play. The oak may be too loud for some, but I think it works just fine, as this almost goes in the direction of recent officially bottled cask-strength versions (say, by Glendronach or Glengoyne) that also turn up the oak a bit without anyone taking offense. Massive honey on the palate, along with a generous sprinkling of (alpine?) herbs, much in the way of a Ricola herbal cough candy. Very warming, very substantial. Ends on red berry fruits. Doesn't need water in my opinion.
    • Finish
      A bit of (welcome) heat, a continuation of the herbal character, and some mouthwatering sweetness. Despite of the clearly perceptible oak influence on the palate, there is little tannin to be found in the aftertaste, and no bitterness whatsoever. Strictly speaking, this is not exactly the longest finish ever, but (again:) it works. Classic and utterly pleasant, without striking a single off note.
