There are two groups of people, those who like the dalwhinnie 15, and think it's amazing (the Jim Murray club of followers) and some who claim its a good, but not exciting malt (The late Micheal Jackson Club , RIP) . Murray gives this malt 95 while MJ 76. A big difference. i set on to find where i stand when it comes to the Dalwhinnie:)
Nose: Heathery notes, with the weakest hint of smoke. faint smoke, don't expect a chimney here.
Palate: Honey heather, with mixed spice, vanilla and a peppery finish, that "stings" your tongue in a very charming way. adorable.
Finish: Long, spice and white pepper.not the Talisker style, but pleasing little pepper. love the finish here.
so where do i stand? somewhere in the middle i think. it's not a 95 point whisk. no ma'am. it ain't. but it's a fine dram, a perilously drinkable malt. i could easily go for a few drams of this, when sitting at home.
don't expect wonders, but it's a very good malt. lightly smokey, and spiced. extremely drinkable.
a dram I'd like at home.
