Whisky Reviews for Dalwhinnie 1998
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.32 points
- Completely underestimated. Subtly, wonderfully elegant. Good, "old-fashioned", dry-nutty Oloroso influence on a bed of bourbon blessing. Slightly carbonated, oily. Leaving with class, I would type in the ripening on Spanish oak. Good barrels, a distillate with character (worm tubs, anyone?) - sometimes it can be so easy. Value for money heavenly, especially nowadays. Diageo-Bashing: gladly, but certainly not here. 86 points. Yes, seriously.
- Very nice onset with a dark fruit note. Unfortunately, the pleasure ends sooner than expected. Actually, the departure already begins before the swallowing process. Too bad.
very pleasing, some malt, sweet blackberry jam, dark honey.
here also full, honey-sweet onset, in addition then drying yellow fruit, maybe quince. But lets go very fast.
very short, some oak and light dark fruit.
A very fruity aroma comes immediately from the glass. And also this delicate smoky note. Some glue and mint. Here I find currants, apricots and orange jam. Marzipan and dark grapes. Vanilla and a touch of tropical fruit flavor.
Begins with nutty bitterness. Followed by the sour orange marmalade with clove spice. A metallic undertone comes along. In the taste then more red apple, some licorice and very mineral. Sharper spice prevails. Behind it honey and subtle maltiness.
Medium. Pepper, roasted aromas, spice and some honey.
- Beautiful lighter balanced whisky. I like it a lot better than last time.
Sweet, malty honey, subtle sherry notes on the nose, light spice, light fruits. Fine and light but beautiful and above all more than a hint of nothingness.
Very present in the mouth, bitter oak, some glue, sherry and spices.
The finish is bittersweet, a little sherry, honey and oak, is spicy and minimal wood smoke.
- Pleasant "Distillers's Edition" - a good all-rounder!
dark fruit (ripe plums), sherry, sweetness (honey), delicate spice (oak);
full-bodied start; Sweetness, honey, fruity, sherry aromas, caramel, spicy oak, round, beautifully harmonious;
medium-length, dry finish; in the finish oak;
- Simple, light summer whisky.
Floral. Malt, sherry, vanilla, honey, nut, apple, pear and mandarin.
Creamy and spicy. Orange peel, milk caramel, oak, pepper, nutmeg and unripe fruits.
Medium, oaky, spicy.
- Nice extension of the 15er.
Honey, pears, sherry, herbs. A nice mix.
Full, sparkling. Oak. Honey. Apples.
Medium long, a little sherry, heather.
- Nose: pear, Simit (this Turkish honey pastry), nutty, slightly moldy tangerine Mouth: This time the moldy mandarin does not take place in the mouth. But a caramel and vanilla, a little warm orange, mulled wine spices. In the finish rather soft and unspectacular. Some orange peel in warm milk. Conclusion: Not spectacular, nothing hurts. Only these tangerines .... Did not give me anything. Too very easy drinking,
