Whisky Reviews for Dalwhinnie 1997

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.42 points

  1. zinaf scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very enjoyable, easy drinking whisky. Fruity with a bit of sherry on the palate. What was good to see is that it has kept the lovely 15yo profile with the addition of subtle sherry notes.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I am very positively surprised, of both, I remembered more like "lala", wrongly. "Qualitatively" I would not make any difference, in 1992 I personally have more.
    1992 = Restschluck from a bottle open about 1 year, 1997 = fresh.
    • Nose
      Direct comparison 1992/2010 vs. 1997/2014:
      both fruity sweet, fairly straightforward and open, you do not have to look far for flavor
      1992: a Haribo-Bärchen-touch, quite "juicy, red / black berries, cherries, with a pinch of cinnamon
      1997: rather light fruits (compote), peach, apricot, pear, creamy, but also a slightly dry wood color
    • Taste

    • Finish
      medium long, sweet, slightly spicy, strangely comes here in 1997 a bit milder

  7. didi1893 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose is relatively unspectacular. In the mouth dominates an extremely spicy fruitiness with malt and vanilla. The taste and the finish compensate for the weak nose. An absolutely solid malt that whets the appetite for more.
    • Nose
      The Dalwhinnie has a relatively subtle fruit note which is best compared to overripe fruits. A touch of pears and apricot rises in my nose. Afterwards a little bites the sprittige alcohol note in the nose.
    • Taste
      At first, a malty and fruity note spreads in the mouth. Then vanilla and a subtle oak note alternate. A fine fruitiness, which I again associate with overripe fruit, harmonizes very well with the fine woody notes. A hint of citrus fruits could emerge here.
    • Finish
      The medium long Angang is characterized by a pleasant spiciness. A fruity woody note with vanilla now dominates longer in the mouth. At the very end there is still a hint of nut.
