Whisky Reviews for Dalwhinnie 15-year-old

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.37 points

  1. SAND scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    (Lot L15N04270612, bottled 2011?)
    NOSE: Honey, summer flowers, heather, light barley and malt notes. Hints of smoke. With water and air; also notes of rich white wine. (88p)
    TASTE: The arrival is substantial, sweet and honeyed. On the mid palate there is sugary malt and barley sweetness, honey, heather, mildly peppered oak spice. Water made the arrival a little lighter but increased the richness or viscosity of the mouth feel. (86p)
    FINISH: The exit and aftertaste, while still sweet, is a bit more spicy, with pepper and a little liquorice. (85p)
    TOTAL SCORE: 86 points.

  2. El Bastardo did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    A rock-solid whisky for intermediate drinkers and an excellent choice for beginners until one or the other newbie might raise the bar.
    • Nose
      60 60
      Quite fruity, I would say above average. A very light smoke can be found, but only relatively at the beginning. It flies quickly. Despite the age, a sweet and fresh meadow and other bright fruits. If you give it a little time, the age comes to the fore.
    • Taste
      60 60
      More on the sweet side, but this is partly offset by the weight and flavor.
    • Finish
      60 60
      Remains for a long time and is pleasantly clumsy down the throat.

  3. Caballa scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    Of mild flavors. It produces creamy vanilla flavors and heather honey sweetness, finishing in a highland smoky glow of surprising intensity.
    • Nose
      On the nose it offers aromas of caramel, fruit salad, nectarine and custard.
      Floral, apple blossom, honeysuckle. Apple peels, pear and a touch of smoke.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the flavor of malt with nuts, honey and vanilla is appreciated. With soft notes of smoke that works its way through the cereal with a spicy touch.
    • Finish
      Long finish with a taste of malt, walnut and almonds.

  4. SAND scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in 2014: 4.0 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Mild and slightly sweet nose with heather, honey and some vanilla. Gradually also showing quite a bit of peat.
    Taste: Rounded, nicely balanced, with a certain richness but still on the mild side. Well made and balanced with just enough bite to it.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Fragrant, fresh fruit, floral. Very refreshing nose.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Good complexity with the price value. Sweet, honey, no spiciness. Taste best without water/ice.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Short and crisp, not too heavy. Definitely good all day drink.

  8. TheDAne scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    VERY NICE, IF A BIT ON THE BORING SIDE. 85-86 POINTS
    • Nose
      very subtle and sweet nose of raw honey, candy, light sirup. Fresh honeymelon, pear, elderflower. Sweet smoke ( as from flavored pipe tobacco)
    • Taste
      pure and clean mouthfeel with nice density of flavor, sweet aand decilate honeyed and melony arrival which really builds on the midpalate with more dry notes of grain and dry hay, some almonds, fresh pear, and dried apricots. More power than the nose and arrival anticipates.
    • Finish
      Quite dry and malty finish of rye bread, sour dough, yeast, accentuated by a touch of golden honey and cane sugar. Also a note of slightly ashy road tar smoke on the aftertaste
