Whisky Reviews for Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold

53 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.07 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    [May, 2017]  Another one of this newish NAS whiskies many distilleries introduced over the last years simply to mask that they have a serious cask quality problem (due to the whisky boom there are not enough high quality bourbon or sherry casks available so the distilleries have to use virgin oak casks in addition AND reduce the maturation times in quality casks to use the same cask more often).

    And exactly this drives the quality of the resulting malts drastically towards the south.  More bitter virgin oakiness, unbalanced profiles and immature spirits combine to rather unpleasant drams (compared to the older standard editions).   And due to the whisky boom they can sell this stuff for even higher prices - scary to see how a whole industry bites the hands that feed them...  Never Accept Stupid marketing!

    Ice-cooled as recommended is not possible, too alcoholic, because I can also approve a grain :-) At room temperature, he is still quite good. These are my notes.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, with sherry and citrus notes
    • Taste
      First sweetness, then vanilla and caramel.
    • Finish
      Slight heat, dry, later bitter chocolate. Long finish.

  9. SimpleSample scored this whisky 73 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      something sweet with alcohol
    • Taste
      very sweet ... caramel ... syrup
    • Finish
      slight sweetness with some bitterness
