Dalwhinnie 15 year old
It is impressive to see such a good age on an entry level bottle. Excellent value for money and a great staple on anyone’s whisky shelf. A shining example of a Bourbon matured malt whisky and a great way to start a journey into single malt Scotch whisky.
On the nose Dalwhinnie is distinctly soft with vanilla, lemon zest and heather honey. The palate is creamy and the same vanilla notes are now accompanied by green apples and caramel and a little nuttiness. The finish is long and lingering and with a wisp of smoke just on the end.
