Tasting Notes by tjb
Pronounced Dale-you-an this distillery was founded in1852 and is Gaelic for “Green Valley”. The bulk of the single malt produced is used in Johnnie Walker blends and other than this 16 yr old official bottling there are only a handful of indie bottlings.
The colour is bronze.
The nose is malty, sherried fruits, raisins, toffee,
Palate is thick with sherry, slightly smoky, oak and toffee. It is very fruity, raisins, dates, prunes.
The finish is medium long with candied fruits and slightly drying.
This is a really nice Whisky and I am now wishing they released more expressions. If you find a bottle I would recommend trying it.
