From the coldest and highest Distillery in Scotland.
 
Dalwhinnie, Scotland, has a population of 80. That’s not a typo. It is home to a small schoolhouse, a pub, an inn, a train station, and the Dalwhinnie Distillery. What else do you need, really? The distillery, founded in 1897 by John Grant, is famous for being the coldest and the “highest” distillery in Scotland. When you are talking about spirits, “highest” can mean several things right? In this case, we are talking about altitude, sitting at nearly 1100 feet above sea level. 
 
Only 10% of production ends up in their single malt nameplate, and they are a small shop to boot with only one wash and one spirit still each. The rest goes into the famous blended Scotch “Black & White.” So grab what you can get your hands on. 
 
Dalwhinnie has a reputation for creating light, almost gentle Whiskies, and Dalwhinnie 15 Year is their most famous expression. Matured only in Bourbon refill casks this malt got awarded 95 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. Its flawless, clean and crisp flavors give this Highlander a recognizable place in the Diageo's Classic Malts range.

Landis
Landis,
A little smoky and sweet. Hate the flimsy box but I'm not trying to enjoy the packaging. Great for after dinner.
 
Matt
Matt,
Like it very much. Classic scotch
 
Wayne
Wayne,
Extremely light & smooth with a hint of citrus . Loved this Highland offering..
 
Lisa
Lisa,
Very smooth. My favorite Scotch for flavor
 
Lauren
Lauren,
I got a very light nose of roast beef and oak. Lightly oiled texture. Hard to believe it's 15 years with such a light yellow color. It begins with a citrus and turning into a honey before lasting into a white pepper. You must take some time between tasting or else it becomes sour-like. It's a good one for the Highland corner of your collection.
 
Kurt
Kurt,
Very smooth but light and delicate. Citrus, honey, vanilla notes give it that sweet flavor. I however favor a more bold taste. Although not a bottle i would purchase it is very good choice if you like a more delicate drink.
 
John
John,
My second favorite single malt. Not much on the nose but great flavor and easy to enjoy paired with a great steak or cigar.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I hate to say it but this one was a bit disappointing. I ordered a tasting box to get this one specifically and I found it to be rather boring. I tend to favor bourbon over scotch but Dalwhinnie really seemed to call to me but unfortunately i don’t think I’ll be buying a bottle. As far as nose I actually picked up smoke maybe a sort of tobacco? Not as heavy as say a Talisker but it was there for me. Tasting was really what sealed the deal for me, I just wasn’t excited. I did pick up fruity/zesty notes but it all seemed boring. Sorry Dalwhinnie.I’m not sorry i tried you but im sorry I won’t be returning any time soon.
 
Sandi
Sandi,
Surprisingly delicious on the palate after an almost non-existent nose.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
My palate is quite inexperienced but this stuff was a homerun! Paired with a Cuban cigar they played so well together, each accentuating the lovely floral notes that just kept getting more and more pronounced as each went on. Only downside is that I only had the one dram. Will be adding this to the home bar for sure!
 
Cristiano
Cristiano,
A bit too much citrus fruits
 
Victor
Victor,
Very sweet and fruity with a hint of smoke. Very good but not my favorite.
 
Cody
Cody,
Not going to put in my liquor cabinet but decent drink.
 
AJ
AJ,
Very smooth, slightly sweet
 
Mark
Mark,
Dalwhinnie has long been my favorite single malt. The 15 tear old was exceptionally smooth and even sweeter than my typical Dalwhinnie; the caramel and fruit flavors really shine. Absolutely wonderful!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Sweety caramel notes, a gentle smoke with a hit of vanilla left in the mouth. Would order again in a bar, unlikely to buy a whole bottle.
 
dale
dale,

Katie
Katie,
Smooth, smoky and sweet, slightly floral. Kk likes it!
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Wonderful smells and tastes of apples, sweet with a light peppery, smokey, finish. My wife, who does not like scotch AT ALL, liked this one, so it's definitely a winner in our home, with many future reappearances.
 
Marc
Marc,
Full of flavor with nice after taste.
 
Drew
Drew,
Apple and vanilla notes are prominent in a good way - a new highlight from the Higjlands
 
Robert
Robert,
Smooth
 
Steven
Steven,
Smooth and soft spoken, Apple aroma with just a touch of smoke. EASY!
 
Monica
Monica,
This is a very smooth single malt and finishes nicely.
 
Chris
Chris,
Never understood the word “butterscotch” until I had this. THEN I got it. Buttery and smooth. Don’t drink it cold.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
I can taste a wild spark of vanilla with citrus added with a touch of creamy flavor. I could enjoy this with a few cubes of ice.
 
Petter
Petter,
Really smooth, one of the smoothest single malts I've tasted. Also sweet and not at all smoky. I really enjoyed sipping on this one.
 
Max
Max,
Tastes sweet with citrus notes. Quite smooth
 
Wesley
Wesley,
I liked this one. It was quite smooth with a slight sweetness at the finish. Nice nose as well.

Very clean and smooth whiskey, strong honey nose with hints of smoke throughout. Well balanced and relaxing.
 
Matt
Matt,
Smooth! Subtle sweet flavors. Very good on ice (yes blasphemy...)

Excellent buy
 
Michael
Michael,
Very smooth. My go to drink after a long night at work takes the edge off perfectly.
 
Brian
Brian,
Very unsuspecting bottle, but wow! Slightly smoky, sweet, and super smooth!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Fresh, light and nice...
 
Helmut
Helmut,
Elegant yet not too long lasting
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Refreshing smell with honey, vanilla and fruit very noticeable. Unfortunately there wasn't much to distinguish the dram once you took a taste. Relatively smooth but....not much else to say. Smoke flavors mildly finish it off. Meh.
 
Brita
Brita,
Amazing!
 
James
James,
This is really tasty! This highland scotch is amazing! I love the honey notes! Absolutely delicious. One of my go to everyday soothes. Been a fan for years!
 
Kevin
Kevin,
7.5 stars but it won’t let me
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
The fire definitely hits your lips, initially. Thought it had a buttery feel on the tongue. Pretty dang smooth. Good. Just not as complex.
 
Gerry
Gerry,
Great flavor, bought a bottle
 
Ty
Ty,
Solid dram, but it’s rather disappointing for 15 years old. Alcohol sharpness present. If you like the Highland profile of flavors, buy Old Pulteney 12. It’s twice as good and half the price!!!
 
Joshua
Joshua,
I definitely smell an apple aroma.. I smell a lot of fruit, actually. Interesting. First sip, the smoke comes out immediately as it hits my tongue. The apple and vanilla notes come in side by side with the light smoke. It ends with a delicate floral note and a hint of citrus and heat. If I wanted to be poetic about this... I'd say it makes me nostalgic of childhood visits to a cider mill in the autumn. The apple, the smoke and slight floral presence... it's a good experience but will not be a bottle purchase for me. I am beginning to think I might not like smoke in my whisky.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Lightly sweet, classic central Highland single malt from the top of Loch Ericht. Light and fruity with heather on the nose.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
A standard for non peaty scotch. Well rounded, smooth and very easy to drink
 
Chris
Chris,
Loved it - smooth!!
 
Dave
Dave,
A really gentle clean start and a long smooth finish. Definitely one of my favorites
 
BEAU
BEAU,
Smooth!!!
 
Toby
Toby,
Dalwhinnie was a very smooth scotch, with a hint of spice. A nice smooth beginning, and a touch of fire at the end. One of my favorites to date.
 
Alex
Alex,
little sweetness with a smokey aftertaste. the aftertaste stays long after drinking, not sure if i liked that.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Dalwhinnie is like sipping a lovely dram while seated in the heather among the mountains. The honey and heather notes keep the bite low in this whisky. It is a smooth yet spicy drink with a friendly burn at the end of the draw. It definitely will accept ice or water to open itself further to the palate.
 
Piotr
Piotr,
Nose is quite similar to Auchentoshan 12 which is very nice; it’s bolder and a very little smoky. Great taste, nice, long, intense finish. I must say I like it a lot.
 
Peter
Peter,
Great with diet coke!! Kiddin people, take it down a notch. I definitely got the honey hints and the caramel for sure. No medicine burn, will order a bottle for my bar this week!
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Very smooth and easy due to honey and vanilla
 
Melanie
Melanie,
Light, fairly smooth. Nice burn at the end.
 
guest
guest,
Sweet and spicy
 
William
William,
Very smooth scotch, by far my favorite as of yet. Very clean and smooth finish
 
Michael
Michael,
This scotch has many flavors but the fire at the end overpowers them. This is a classic example of a decent scotch that could be a good or a great, but is just a little too harsh to get it there.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
This has a very nice nose, and I experienced oak and cherry flavors, along with a nice syrupy texture. It also had no bad aftertaste, which I likely was attuned to because of my experience with Talisker. It still has some very strong(no pun intended) competition with my other whiskey favorites, but it is without a doubt a solid drink
 
william
william,
I really enjoyed this scotch. It had a robust, smooth flavor with subtle hints of vanilla, walnut, and honey. Would recommend this as a gateway to scotches for bourbon drinkers.
 
Gyula
Gyula,
Smooth smoky, honey and fruit smells. Very delicious, vanilla flavor, mild orange. Sweet aftertaste, mildly sour cherry. Very nice, I would recommend it to everyone.
 
Hansen
Hansen,
not bad at all, slight sweet initial with smooth aroma in the tongue, inviting yet it tells u to slow down
 
Magnus
Magnus,
A vety nice whisky, which in my opinion grows flavor with a small sip of water. Even I, a true novice when it comes to tasting spirits, can really feel the sweet notes of honey, vanilla and caramel in this one.
 
Raoul
Raoul,
Nice, vanilla, honey, caramel, smoke
 
arthur
arthur,
NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS FROM TASTE TO SMELL ECT, ECT. ENJOYED EVERY DROP
 
Scott
Scott,
Great, sweet taste and smell. Lighter, more subtle, more drinkable whisky.
 
Martin
Martin,
It has a good taste. I would say it is very nice in the variety of flavours. I like it.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
easy to get used to. sweet and buttery toffey... little burn. good finish
 
Tom
Tom,
One of my all time favorite scotches!
 
Jason
Jason,
Rich, fruity, sweet.
 
Christine
Christine,
I enjoyed the crisp aroma, but noticed more barley than honey or sweetness in the flavor. Pleasant enough, but nothing I would seek out.
 
Nick
Nick,
Smoky, sweet, strong, smooth. This whisky tries to combine all and does not impress me at all. It’s all one big blend of average tastes which is a shame really.
 
Guillermo
Guillermo,
Smooth, light peaty taste, and good finish.
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
When I want whisky with hints of flower and leather. This is where I go. Very smooth.
 
Louis
Louis,
Another class malt with a lovely taste
 
Jeremiah
Jeremiah,
This one is really smooth and has good flavor. If you'er looking for something to really zap you with heavy boldness then try something else. I found it Very enjoyable!
 
Bruno
Bruno,
Comfortable, not hard to enjoy. Nothing special about it..
 
Alex
Alex,
The peat is missing. This one is for smooth whisky lovers.
 
guest
guest,
Very good, and for the price at Total Wine and More is great deal!
 
Andrej
Andrej,
Smooth, but rather short in taste.
 
Joel
Joel,
A great choice for highland Scotch. Less crisp and sweet than a lot of other Highlands and more savory and rich. A very complex flavor.
 
Bryce
Bryce,
This is a tasty dram, almost pretty would be a good description it comes on quick with light fruity grassy and floral notes that hide a bit of smoke and oak under it. There is an odd taste on the finish I cant identify that I'm not super fond of but it is one of the best single malts I have tried to date
 
Ashley
Ashley,
Nice
 
David
David,
Sweet and nice aroma. Strong initial kick but very sweet sugary almost unusualy honeylike following (at least for such spirit). Not smokey at all and I like that. Pleasent after taste. Good but not perfect. Nice companion for casual evening.
 
Steve
Steve,
Not a big fan of scotch, some are ok, some not. I really like this one, and will order again.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
very subtle peat and smoke, but enough to tell you that this is a scotch. as a newbie to scotch I love this drink.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Delicious
 
Tomáš
Tomáš,
Bit spicy on tongue
 
Mike
Mike,
Good aroma, light and sweet. Thought it had a rough, smokey finish.
 
Gerard
Gerard,

Nice aroma, very light with a nice long aftertaste. I enjoyed it and will drink it again.
 
Keith
Keith,
One of my all time favourites such a sweet whisky with an aftertaste that reminds me of bonfire night
 
guest
guest,
Light, a little sweet but covered with fruit smell
 
Ioan
Ioan,
Guess I would have had a more elaborate opinion if I had actually received that tasting box, but... *insert default*.
 
Jack
Jack,
I really liked this. It was my favorite of the 3 in my welcome box. It is complex and smooth.
 
Lucas
Lucas,
Not too smokey or peaty. Still on the sweeter side. Not great but not bad.
 
Robert
Robert,
There was the slightest whiff of honeysuckle or similar aromatic floral scent on the nose. On the palate I found a very small taste of peat and a continuation of a honeyed undertone. I did not taste a lot on the finish other than the whisky burn. I have owned a bottle of Dalwhinnie 15 in the past, but I don't know that I would buy it again, especially with all of the better options available today.
 
Matthieu
Matthieu,
Agressif dès l'entrée en bouche.
 
john
john,
Not for me. Did not care for the burning as it went down my throat. I was under the impression that the older scotch gets the smoother it gets. Not a nice smell or flavor for me.
 
Adam
Adam,
This bottle was ok nothing to get excited about but good
 
Gabor
Gabor,
A very rounded 15 year old scotch with a nice long finish. I liked it very much.
 
Roger
Roger,
Smooth taste with the hint of Smokey. i had the sample and bought a bottle enough said.
 
Joel
Joel,
Smooth. There's a touch of sass but it's otherwise quite palatable with finishing on a sweet note.
 
Michael
Michael,
I really liked this one a little smokey but super smooth
 
Margaret
Margaret,
Thanks to my first Tasting Box, I have discovered I'm not a fan of scotch. I liken this one to drinking a charcoal fire even though there were aromas of green apples. Too much smoke and peat.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
A nice sweet scotch. Slight smoky peat nose. Light on the palate. Smooth finish. A good starter Scotch whisky. My wife likes it.
 
Oliver
Oliver,
Floral, honey
 
Xavier
Xavier,
Love this with a drop of cola.. The cola makes it taste like pure honey. Very smooth and refine...
 
Marty
Marty,
I liked the initial aroma. Drank it straight with one cube of ice and it went down very smoothly
 
Greg
Greg,
Honey, caramel, citrus, smooth. Very enjoyable. Better than the most common high-shelfs.
 
Richard
Richard,
This one is a firm favourite in the collection, and certainly missed when it's all gone! Smooth and subtle with a reassuring smokiness. Best with a splash of ginger ale and a cube of ice.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
No need to add water. Very lite and vanilla
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Good honey flavor. Great burn. Smooth. Could linger longer tho
 
Keith
Keith,
A little sweet for my liking. Very nice flavor, little burn on the back side. My first nose of it reminded me of wine. After resting a bit the honey really jumped out. Not my everyday choice but I'll most likely add a bottle to my collection.
 
Ajith
Ajith,
Smooooooooooooooooth... Lacks a distinct flavor. Subtlety is the name of the game here. It's a scotch I could have everyday.
 
Collin
Collin,
I am a beginner scotch drinker and have tried several different bottle recommendations and samples from Flaviar. Dalwhinnie is a must have. I put in for a bottle of it every time I order from this site.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
A sweeter malt with a slight smoky taste and a spicy finish.
 
Mazi
Mazi,
Nice and smooth. Not too smokey.
 
Scott
Scott,
I was actually not a fan of any of the samples in the box, as I am not a huge fan of Scotch in general. I'm sure they are all good, but not liking Scotch, I cannot give a fair review of how good they are. I actually would have preferred a varied sample box. i.e. one bourbon, one cognac, one tequila, that sort of thing.
 
Paul
Paul,
The Glenkinchie and Lagavulin were great but the bottle with the Dalwhinnie was broken upon arrival so I didn't get to try it.
 
james
james,
did not like the aroma but is tasted good.
 
Trevor
Trevor,
Not bad.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Noice
 
Glen
Glen,
This is the single malt that introduced me to the sainted spirit. And one I return to when the opportunity arises. This is, for me is an arm chair in a glass. And like the arm chair, is better without any water poured into it.
 
Alex
Alex,
Great aroma and very smooth. Drinkable with everything and could drink straight or on the rocks.
 
Donald
Donald,
Not a big fan, personally found it hard to swallow and not very drinkable.
 
Rich
Rich,
Excellent dram.
 
Betty
Betty,
Was very easy to drink.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Solid but not a top choice
 
Jason
Jason,
Smooth sipping... pleasant sweetness. The lingering flavor is very smooth.
 
Carolyn
Carolyn,
Slight alcohol burn on the tail
 
Chris
Chris,
The sweetness stood out for me on this one. Good scotch but probably not one i would go out and buy right away.
 
Cameron
Cameron,
I was pretty indifferent about this whiskey. Not something I would say I liked but I didn't hate it either
 
Mike
Mike,
I could see drinking this is the right setting, but not an every day one for me.
 
Jerel
Jerel,
I like it. I'll definitely be buying a bottle at some point. Very smooth, sweet flavor.
 
Peter
Peter,
Still a Good and Nice Whisky even for The less experienced whisky drinker. Really Nice to taste with chocolate
 
Josh
Josh,
Smooth. Mellow flavor.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
This was the clear winner from my tasting box (and the other guys as well). Smooth, a little bit sweet and a bite at the end. This one will be coming home in a larger bottle soon.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Smooth
 
Steve
Steve,
My go to scotch
 
Scott
Scott,
Amazingly smooth with subtle sweet flavors.....
 
John
John,
Very impressive whisky, with a smoky sweetness that gave way to a peppery finish. A splash of water lengthened the finish, but seemed to dull the palate a bit.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
very good flavor
 
guest
guest,
Great and easy sipping whisky!
 
Ben
Ben,
I liked the honey flavor and it was smooth to drink. You get just a little touch of apple at the end too. The history of this scotch is interesting too, looked up more info on line, could be a fun one to visit!
 
Mary
Mary,
This was an impressive whisky in the welcome box. With a few drops of water, the finish is better appreciated. Good flavor.
 
Samuel
Samuel,
Nice smooth taste, tiny bit of spice with a mellow vanilla that rolls across the palate
 
Trent
Trent,
Medium to sharp aroma with hint of honey Strong honey flavor with hints of caramel. Finishes with light airy citrus flavor with smallest hint of smoke.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Very strong apple aroma at first, nice kick, and smokey flavor. Not bad, but not mind blowing. To me it's a nice alternative to your typical whisky but I' don't see me rushing to buy a bottle yet.
 
Bob
Bob,
Smooth and light. Has a bit of a bite but still refreshing.
 
B
B,
Smells of pot-pourri and tastes like Werther's Originals, with an unfortunate lingering finish of bad caramel syrup.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Dalwhinnie was DalWinner of the tasting box. Fruity on the nose and a smooth and sweet taste. I dig it!!!
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Smooth and rich tasting
 
Matt
Matt,
I toured the Dalwhinnie with my family last year. A great tour and experience and the Dalwhinnie remains one of my favorites.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Long lasting finish. Very nice
 
David
David,
Smooth and refreshing. Tasting it you can feel sweetness and the interesting aroma. Definitely would belong my collection at home for friends and family.
 
Tony
Tony,
Smooth and refreshing. Nice citrus and Carmel notes. A little spice. Definitely one I would have in my collection at home for company.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Smells like a campfire with a sweet honey flavor as it hits the tongue. Sweetness gives way to fire and smoke.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
I'm new to premium whisky and this is the first proper Scotch I have tried over all not bad just not what I thought scotch would taste like
 
Andy
Andy,
Very nice Scotch. Nice and smooth with both sweetness and smokiness.

Morgan,
Smooth and complex. I like the honey and smoke. Excited to try with a cigar

This is my kind of Scotch, and I'll be adding it to the cottage bar.
 
Sam

Very smooth flavor, especially for a 15 year.
 
Rodney
Rodney,
Easy to sip. Like a fine Italian woman.
 
guest

Nice smell, good taste.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Flavorful, smooth, and sweet. Complex but well balanced. Great scotch for those looking to enjoy with a bourbon lover.
 
Jacob
Jacob,
My favorite of the tasting box. Good flavor, not overpowering. Smooth without a ton of fire.
 
Mary
Mary,
Light taste with a delightful honey finish... almost herbal.
 
Will
Will,
I found this better than expected. Sweet but a hint of smoke, a nice Scotch.
 
Tim
Tim,
Vey smooth very drinkable, nice straight in a good glass, great nose and follow on sweetness. Didn't need any water and certainly no ice. The sort of dram where a belt her and a bottle and suddenly the bottle is empty and your legs don't work...!
 
Jon
Jon,
An easy Highland dram to enjoy anytime. A little heat, spice and smoke, barley and vanilla along with a trace of nutmeg... Love it!
 
KC
KC,
Good. Not crazy about the ending nose. Bitter, floral, little smoke. Not bad. I really don't like the aftertaste though. Drink if offered, but probably never buy a bottle.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Light, drinkable, enjoyable.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Good mellow flavor
 
Alec
Alec,
A bit spicy but still very mellow and easy to drink. A certain boldness stands out and makes this one of my favorites.
 
Richard
Richard,
A nice sweet dram. I got honey, ice wine, and berries on the nose. I got the same honey note again, also ice cream with berries. I would drink this again
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Light and clean, as advertised. Pretty sweet, with honey-like qualities. The sweetness also had a biscuit characteristic as well. Definitely apple and vanilla too. Straightforward and smooth. I would drink this again, but prefer Dalwhinnie's Distiller's Edition, which is smoother yet more complex.
 
J.
J.,
Not great, not terrible. Still new to the tasting process so rating conservatively until I have a few more samples under my belt.
 
Chris
Chris,
I've never been impressed with this distillery's offerings, and this is an example why. I'm not saying it's horrible; it's great for introducing people to the world of scotch whisky, but it tastes like the distillery couldn't make up its mind on the flavor profile when creating it, like "I don't want to use a lot of peat, and be a proper highland malt, but I like the lightness of lowland. Oh yeah, I like American and Irish whiskey so I'll add that flavor to the mix by using their barrels. Anyone of them, doesn't matter. But as long as it's smooth." Smoothness is what they got right out of it, but doesn't taste like a true highland to me.
 
Clarence
Clarence,
Nice smoky flavor in the taste, while the apple pops out in the finish. An interesting new experience for me, being a mostly Kentucky Bourbon guy.
 
NICHOLAS
NICHOLAS,
This was my fave out of the three. It had a sweet initial taste to the lips with the nice warm sensation afterwards. Could sip on this for days!
 
Tom
Tom,
Very tasty. Definitely is smooth with little after taste
 
Eric
Eric,
Nice. Smooth and gentle. Sweet.
 
guest

This is a good introductory bottle of scotch. Flavor and burn are mild and smooth.

Honey in your glass.
 
Michael

Rodney
Rodney,
Out of the samples.. I loved this and will be buying bottle soon
 
Tom
Tom,
Sweet and smooth!
 
Alan
Alan,
Very smooth, slightly smoky.
 
Sam
Sam,
Not huge into highlands. Not as sweet as most I've tried so wasn't disappointed. Recommend an ice ball for a better flavor. Would not buy but would partake again.
 
Dave
Dave,
Starts off almost creamy, but it thins out to a peppery finish. A drop of water blooms the other flavors quite nicely.
 
Robert
Robert,
Smooth and subtle flavor.
 
James
James,
This is good. Very smooth and mild. Not spicy at all. More apple and leather.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Wow, This is my new goto.. Big citrus, Apple and nutty flavor mix. Its great with a few drops of water or a small ice cube to help release the big flavors. So smooth with a clean finish.
 
T.C.
T.C.,
Such a smooth flavor, a new fave
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Sweet with peppery finish. Smooth start for easy drinking.
 
Mikall
Mikall,
I've been a big fan of Whisky for years now but the Dalwhinnie was the first I've had with an obvious vanilla flavor. Also the transition from the sweet start the the malty finish was great. I'm definitely going to buy this bottle.
 
Paul
Paul,
Again not a Scotch drinker, I found this rather pleasing not too peaty and smoky, with a sweet after burn. This I would carry for my Scotch loving friends.

The Dalwhinnie 15 year old is the best light and fruity, non-peated Scotch I've tasted thus far. I was quite surprised that I enjoyed it so much (being a fan of the Islays).

The Dalwhinnie was not bad. Decent flavor. I would drink this Scotch again. I was not impressed with the Glenkinchie. I did not like the Talisker Port. Had a taste like antiseptic.
 
guest

Peat finish, but I like it and I usually don't like peaty whisky. Had a dram in Inverness and this would be worth adding to my collection.

Had high hopes for a 15 yr old. Not a lot of flavor but a lot of bite. Pass me another Highland Park 15 yr old if we are sticking to this age group

A classic dram. I keep a bottle in the freezer for a thick cold dollop of goodness on a hot summer's eve. A solid and consistent single malt.
